Annamarie Pamphilis, BSDH, RDH, CHC
I began my journey in 1995 when I became a dental hygienist in Cleveland, Ohio. I was dedicated to my career and worked hard, but it wasn’t long before I started to notice chronic pain in my neck, back, and elbows. I also gained weight, developed stomach problems and anxiety. While taking care of patients, most importantly, I forgot about taking care of me.
It's all about Lifestyle, Exercise, Attitude, and Nutrition
In light of my plight, I became a Certified Health Coach with Dr. Sear's Health and Wellness Institute where I learned all about health through L.E.A.N., an acronym that stands for Lifestyle, Exercise, Attitude, and Nutrition.
In my quest to help myself, I was motivated to do the same for other dental professionals, who may have lost their luster.
Education is very important and is the reason why I continue to always be learning, something. I also write a blog called The Dental Hygiene Chronicles where I chronicle the life of dental hygienists and talk about other important things like the best shoes for clinic.
In 2019 I was certified in:
- ACE Fitness as a Group Fitness Instructor
- SilverSneakers as an Enerchi Instructor
- Tai Chi Easy Practice Leader with the Healer Within Foundation
As a health coach to dental professionals, writer on behalf of dental hygiene and dental hygienist, I have immersed my life in all things dental. I love it!
Annamarie was insightful, passionate and motivating. Her on-site course helped the entire dental staff implement relaxation techniques that we utilize on a daily basis. Patients love the change in energy.
