A lecture on the internal and external pressures of being a dental practitioner and how to recognise and manage them
Dr Annalene Weston, Dentolegal Adviser
Dr Samantha King, Medical Adviser
Has concern or worry for a patient, a colleague or your workplace bothered you outside work hours in the last month?
The answer is probably yes. Anxiety like this is common, affecting a surprisingly large percentage of dental practitioners.
This state of mind can also lead to burnout, something which poses a serious threat to dentists worldwide.
Join us at Under Pressure, where we’ll explore the causes and consequences of this strain, both from the pressure cooker of the surgery and our own internal stresses. We’ll also look at how to identify signs of stress and burnout, and give expert advice on how to manage these issues.
Pressure does not discriminate, so the lecture is essential advice for all dental practitioners.
Free for Dental Protection members and their support staff as well as University staff and students
