About The Book

Are you a stressed-out dentist? You’re not alone.

Dental school doesn’t prepare graduates for the business side of dentistry, and many dentists struggle with the same issues, squeezed between student loan debt, insurance issues, broken systems, and the daily demands of practice management. Worse, despite the commonality of these problems, many dentists feel deeply alone in their struggle.

Dentists, you’re not alone anymore. Your health and happiness matter and Dr. Eric Block is here to help.

Burnout? He’s been there. Despair? He’s done that. Recovery? Yes, he did--and you can, too.

Whether you’re a student, associate, or practice owner, this book is for you. Dr. Block addresses the mental illness epidemic among dentists with a solution-focused approach that relies heavily on peer support. Dr. Block and several other dentists share their stories about struggling with common challenges: financial stress, personnel issues, illness, addiction, and burnout.

These stories and solutions will help you break down your breakdown and figure out your best steps back to greater health and happiness.

This is how you can avoid total burnout and looking forward to going to work every day.
about book


About The Author

Dr. Eric Block

“A few years ago, I was in a very dark place. I was questioning my place in the profession. I had major anxiety, regret, despair, mental and physical exhaustion.

However, I took action through making changes at work, years of therapy, finding the right combination of prescribed medications, exercise, peer engagement, and other stress relievers. I now enjoy going to work every day and taking care of my patients.”

Dr. Eric Block is a full-time practicing dentist in Acton, MA. He is passionate about mental health and stress management in dentistry. By sharing his story in The Stress-Free Dentist, Dr. Block hopes to create a community where like-minded dentists can share their stories, struggles, and strategies for coping with burnout, depression and ultimately be able to reduce stress and anxiety.

When he’s not taking care of patients or writing books, you can find Dr. Block practicing what he preaches--self-care and movement. For Dr. Block, playing tennis and practicing yoga have helped tremendously with his physical and mental health. He also soaks up as much time with his family as possible--his wife, Sooann; daughter, Charlotte; and son, Axel.

Dr. Block also loves helping dentists find new customer offers on his website DealsforDentists.com writing blogs about dentistry, and interviewing dentists, vendors, and coaches from across the industry on his podcast The Deals for Dentists Podcast.
