A significant number of dentists at some point in their career will run into either personal or professional problems which may impact on their work or training and therefore may need additional support.
  • Sickness/ill health (physical, mental, emotional)
  • Personal factors (dealing with stress and anxiety, family concerns, bereavement)

  • Learning difficulties and neurodiverse conditions – dyslexia, autistic spectrum disorders, ADHD etc.
