Practicing dentistry over the past 15 years, we have both felt and observed the effect that mental health problems can have on individuals and teams in the dental industry. Through experiencing these effects as a a practice owner and associate, and going through our own personal journeys, we believed the time has come for a change. By starting the conversation and implementing certain methods, we can begin to address this often unspoken about, yet critical, issue facing not only the dental industry, but the community at large.
