A Movement of Inclusivity and Support in the Dental Community

ello everyone, I am thrilled to share with you the launch of our new initiative, which is very close to my heart. Our vision is simple yet profound: in our community, what’s in your cup should not matter. We are here to normalize sobriety in the dental industry, creating an environment where everyone feels comfortable and accepted, regardless of their lifestyle choices.

Our initiative is not just for those who embrace sobriety but is open to anyone who supports this mission. Whether you are sober or not, your presence and support play a crucial role in driving this movement forward. At Sober Life Rocks, we believe in the power of unity and inclusivity.

As we embark on this journey, I am eager to meet and connect with all of you who share our vision. In our regular newsletters, which will be meticulously designed and filled with enriching content, we will keep you updated on our progress and initiatives. Our members also will enjoy multiple additional ways to connect; monthly virtual meetings, Morning Smiles Meet Ups at dental conferences and honestly are open to what other support our community members ask for. Shoot – I even think one day we will have our own conference – how fun would that be? Together, we can make a significant difference, one where sobriety is not just accepted but celebrated.
