Stress and burnout is prevalent in the dental profession. It carries a heavy burden on the lives of individuals and their families, as well as a knock-on adverse effect on dental teams and services. Sometimes it is devastating. As well as working to identify and remove triggers, raising awareness of poor mental health and signposting to support services is a key priority for the BDA. This lecture will tackle all of these important issues, with some suggestions for solutions for individuals, teams and stakeholders. 

Learning objectives
  • Aetiology, signs and symptoms of stress and burnout
  • Methods of preventing stress.
  • Be aware of signposting for dentists experiencing stress and burnout and organisations available.
  • Training available for dentists interested in helping others experiencing stress and burnout.
