In this week’s episode I interviewed Dr. Shakila Angadi.
Dr. Shakila Angadi is the owner of Palmer Smile Design in Easton, PA. As a mother, dentist and wife, she has strived to achieve balance in her personal and professional life for many years.
After practicing dentistry for over 10 years, Dr. Angadi realized that the empathetic communication and self-awareness techniques were the key to expanding her practice exponentially.
After being coached by leaders in dentistry and emotional intelligence, she was determined to expand her professional expertise to combine the two. Bridging the gap between professionalism and emotional agility, she is working on many projects to help dentists (and women) communicate and react with emotional awareness to improve the quality of their lives.
Shakila runs a Facebook Group called Emotional Intelligence for the (modern) Mom – a group where like-minded moms (not exclusively dentists) share tools and tips for shifting mindset to improve their lives.
