“Building a Championship Culture by Playing Small Ball to Get Big Results”

Joel Goldberg
Author & Member of the Kansas City Royals Television Broadcast

Joel Goldberg

Small Ball, Big Results is about the small things that add up to the big wins in baseball, business, and in life. Culture matters in every profession. It is vitally important for leaders to focus on creating and sustaining a winning atmosphere and a championship mindset with their teams. Research has demonstrated that when employees and senior leaders have the same view of the culture, employee engagement metrics are markedly higher than those in less aligned cultures. Employees who embrace their culture and hold the organization's mission as their own are more engaged in their work and in the organization as a whole. Through powerful storytelling, Joel Goldberg shares how building a stronger culture is the foundation to success, and it requires playing Small Ball every day.

Attendees will learn:

  • How to build trust within a team
  • The power of positivity
  • Knowing that every role matters
  • Making adjustments when you've hit a curve
“Why do I Feel Like Crap?” Mental Health and Burnout in Dentistry

Jessica Metcalfe, DMD
Founder, The Alchemist Dentist, International Speaker, Confidence Coach

Jessica Metcalfe

It's been a hell of a couple of years which feels like decades. You notice you're waking up in the middle of the night stressing about a conversation that was had or an upcoming treatment plan. You may even notice things that didn't usually stress you out, are causing more anxiousness and overwhelm. It feels as if you can't catch a break and as you hold your team and clinic together, all you want is someone to tell you, "You're doing a good job and it's going to be okay." As we slowly move into a world post-pandemic, it's time to bring to light the importance of talking about burnout in dentistry. Stop struggling to create a work-life balance and re-think your approach to a busy professional life that allows you to have more energy, freedom and enjoyment each day.

Learning Objectives:

  • Address the implications of burnout caused by stress associated with today’s modern lifestyle
  • Design a framework and navigate a series of tools to help proactively manage your energy before you allow stress to overwhelm you and limit your performance
  • Learn how to spot when stress is building and decide when it’s time to re-adjust your strategy
  • Stop asking “how she/he does it all?” and learn what "all" actually is
  • Manage stress around relationships, decision making, daily habits
  • Identity how to detach from work, improve self-care, enjoy interests and playtime

Thursday Experts Continuing Education Sessions

Practice Management: Fundamentals and Trends


We are excited to introduce our inaugural Expert Session on Thursday, October 20th. This is an all-day event that will occur each year as a start to the EndoCon meeting. The goal behind the Expert Session is to provide topics that are typically not addressed in other continuing education events, and are often learned through real world experience.

The topics for the 2022 Expert Session will be as follows:

  • Financial Decisions the Doctor Must Get Right: Flipping Uncertainty Into Security
