Wellbeing Support for the Dental Team
Research has shown that occupational stress is common amongst the dental profession and is a key driver of burnout and mental ill health.
These problems can affect individuals at any stage of their career. There has traditionally beena reluctance amongst the dental profession to speak about personal problems, including mental
ill health, and seek support. This can be driven by concerns about confidentiality, embarrassment,
and the impact of health disclosures for professional registration.
