Season 2 - The Women in Dentistry Podcast #26: Ms. Donna Armstrong

November 30, 2021

Welcome to season 2!

For our 26th episode of the Women in Dentistry podcast, we have Ms. Donna Armstrong.

Donna started her career in 1992, in the meeting and events industry after receiving her BBA from Northwood University. She worked full time as an event producer while also pursuing her Biology degree from the University of Georgia. An opportunity arose for her to start an event production company in Atlanta which resulted in successful operations for 14 years. Client vision and experience satisfaction, as well as navigating relationships between providers and end-users are 2 strong skill sets that the industry naturally develops along with traditional business skills. Donna’s company received local, national, and international awards.

After selling her business and taking a few years off while her son was young, she reentered the industry as a Director of meetings and events for a museum in Atlanta until she met her current partners of Promethean Dental Systems in early 2019. She was instantly intrigued by the concept brought forth. The dental educators demonstrated technology and dental education integration that was unmatched in their minds and a generational transformation in learning. Their challenge was introducing this new tech to supplement and complement existing educational standards. Promethean Dental Systems Educational Center was created to fill this role.

Donna has been leading the design and operation of business services her entire career. She has been focused on providing services that balance operational efficiency and world-class customer experience. Donna uses her detailed orientation for results to ensure all dental simulation educational courses are properly tested and delivered at all educational centers with a passion for her customers. Donna has been hands-on with PDS customers since the inception of our first simulation center.

Season 2 - The Women in Dentistry Podcast #19:  Ms. Bethany Piziks

Season 2 - The Women in Dentistry Podcast #19: Ms. Bethany Piziks

October 12, 2021

Welcome to season 2!

For our 19th episode of the Women in Dentistry podcast, we have Bethany Piziks. Her journey began in a “lightning strike” moment when she was 13 and came home from school to find that her parents had sold her beloved horses (they couldn’t afford to keep them). She was devastated and decided she’d never again lose something she loved because of money. So she became a dentist…thinking it would be an easy way to make lots of money. Instead, what she experienced for over 20 years of practice (even though she was very successful on the outside) was enormous stress and anxiety, sleepless nights, and the slow, steady breakdown of her physical and emotional health. As she worked through her own healing, her passion shifted from restoring teeth to restoring hearts and spirits and helping others who were struggling the way she did.
In 2015 she sold her practice, completed a 2-year Certification program called Touched By A Horse to become an Equine Gestalt Coach, and BraveHeart Serenity Coaching was born! She now partners with horses to provide impactful coaching experiences, helping her clients get unstuck from old patterns, stress, anxiety, and fear, and attain serenity.
In 2020 she joined Solace LifeSciences (the makers of NuCalm) as a strategic partner, and she is excited to combine the power of neuroscience technology with Equine Gestalt methodology. This is an exponentially effective system of bringing long-lasting serenity and well-being to those who seek it!
