Letting Go Of Perfection, with Dr. Sonia Chopra
All good dental practitioners know that every tooth has a story. But it's only the great ones who recognize that it's peoples stories that really matter. Because understanding where your peers and patients are in their journeys is the key to building strong relationships and a stronger practice, and it's all rooted in self-empowerment.
Dr. Sonia Chopra knows a thing or two about this. You don't become the first female endodontist in Charlotte, NC (and board-certified, to boot) without a serious growth mindset and a strong dose of hustle. Her entire career has been characterized by pushing herself and empowering others to grow as entrepreneurs, leaders, and patient advocates all in the service of creating a more educated, balanced field.
Because Sonia refuses to mind the dentistry status quo. When no one would hire her out of residency, she started her own practice. When she felt she was losing time with her family due to how many hours she was spending in the office, she became more intentional with her schedule. And when she realized she could save more teeth and improve people's lives by providing dentists and endos with the proper education, she took it upon herself to lead the charge.
Now, on top of running her thriving practice, Sonia provides groundbreaking digital education and community support to general dentists and endodontists who want to uplevel their technical skills, patient experience, and overall business models. Through her thoughtfully designed online course, E-School, she is revolutionizing the reputation of endodontics through the simple, tangible lessons rooted in her own diverse experience. By empowering dentists to perform better root canals, empowering endodontists to run better practices, and empowering patients to make better health decisions, Sonia is paving a new way forward for the next generation of healthy, confident, empowered people both in and out of the chair.
