The quest to achieve and improve professionalism is a never-ending one. One such attempt is introducing mindfulness practice into dental curriculum. The qualities cultivated through mindfulness closely resemble the global attitude of professionalism. Professionalism and mindfulness are broad overlapping constructs with a common professional aim: letting go of selfish, short-sighted rewards and promoting the long-term common good. This article reviews the role of mindfulness in higher education as well as clinical practice.
