I`ve been a big fan of Dental Economics for 30 years, and I felt the February issue was one of the best ever. I was especially moved by the interview that editor Joe Blaes conducted with Tony Robbins.

It seems that much of the information that dentists are exposed to deals with nuance - the tiny things that make a difference. That`s fine, but I believe we are all well-served to be reminded of the "big things," such as wisdom, value, success, and joy, as Joe and Tony did in this excellent interview.

Here is my interpretation of the "bottom line." Knowledge understood and acted upon creates wisdom. You can tell if your actions are sagacious, as acting wisely leads to happiness. And there can be no meaningful success without joy.

I`ve long believed that dentists need to be exposed to more philosophy, psychology, and myth history. Studying the works of Joseph Campbell may be more important to success than any dental text or course a doctor could ever peruse.
