Cannot stress the importance of this anymore. Specifically referring to work, morals and ethics. In the dental field, I've seen and been asked to do things that I've not been comfortable with. I've had jobs where numbers and finances took priority over quality of care. I had developed a fear of speaking up for what I believe is right. I allowed people of higher pay and education than I to dictate my actions. One of my most impressionable mentors has been Dr. Wynn. She taught me that if I am always being honest, straightforward and following protocol there is NOTHING to fear. Now I work confidently and fearlessly knowing that I will never settle in my career. I will never be complacent, lazy or take short cuts. This goes for jobs, friendships, relationships, everything. Do. Not. Settle.
