Our Mission is To Help Dentists Live a Successful
and Balanced Life with Purpose Outside of our Profession
I consider myself a person who strives to develop daily and with a strong inner game. When the Light Side Course came about, I was curious to learn about another aspect of dentistry that is not really talked about. One thing I learned is that we need better tools to deal with dentistry-specific stress. I strongly recommend the course, even before you take your license exam! The community aspect is phenomenal because the course attracts people that are humble and want to learn like me.
I loved the Light Side Course! Dr. Kyle Stanley has taken what has been considered taboo in our profession and opened up avenues to reshape the mindset of dentists. Dr. Stanley has the uncanny ability, not only to speak at our level but present research to aid in our growth of depression and into freedom from stress and anxiety. This course is laid out in a way that is not condescending and allows for a deep soul-searching look into why I am the way I am.
Dr. Kyle Stanley's Light Side Course was perfect for me at the perfect time. Dentistry can be stressful, and not enough people are talking about it. This course will help you understand the challenges, give you a safe space to discuss your personal challenges with colleagues who can not only relate but provide support, and give you the tools to deal with those challenges and stressors that you can start using immediately. I would recommend this course to any dentist at any stage of their career.

I'm a father, husband, and family man who happens to be a second-generation dentist. I had a very successful career in dentistry that unfortunately led me to a breaking point of anxiety and depression. On the outside I was making good money, speaking at the top podiums around the world, and leading a celebrity practice in Beverly Hills, CA. Nobody knew I was suffering on the inside. I needed to find a way out of this dark side of dentistry. This is how Light Side was founded.
I was able to pull myself out of the darkness and into the light by way of research-driven protocols, habits, and tools. When I started telling other dentists about my journey, they wanted to learn about how they could implement my knowledge. To date, I have helped and mentored hundreds of doctors from around the world and Light Side remains my proudest accomplishment in my career.
The recorded videos have a duration of ~3 hours. The supplemental workbooks increase that time.

Absolutely not! Although some issues might be more relevant in some countries compared to others, all dentists deal with issues and this course is definitely going to help everyone. We have had dentists from 5 different continents take this course!
Dr. Stanley would highly recommend this course for dental students since these topics should be addressed in dental school. By understanding the stress points in dental practices, young doctors can build resilience and mindfulness in addition to limiting their liability and practicing with more joy.
The course is a combination of recorded videos and a workbook so it can be completed completely at your own pace. This course can work around any busy dental schedule!
No! Stress and burnout go in waves during one's career. Dr. Stanley has found that by understanding these topics, you may be able to have better resilience in your future practice.
Yes! Dr. Stanley has helped dentists to avoid stress by understanding it from the get go. If you have very little stress, you may also be able to help others in the community with your experience.
