  • About This Course

In collaboration with FGDP

Currently, there is high incidence of stress and depression among dental practitioners and team members. A sense of loneliness and isolation is also commonly cited in surveys, and BDA research has shown that almost a fifth of dentists have seriously thought about suicide. Yet 72% of dentists responding to Dentistry Confidence Monitor (in 2019) said that they weren’t sure to whom they could turn for support.
