New mental health survey

We have launched a new survey looking at how the last six months of the pandemic has affected the profession in Wales.

This latest mental health survey will focus on the ongoing stress felt by dentists across Wales in regard to day-to-day situations such as working in extended PPE during the summer.

This work follows on from a survey that we sent out in January 2021 which addressed the extent to which dentists felt their mental health had been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The results of this survey have been published in BDJ In Practice, with a full research paper to be published in the BDJ later this year. The results have also been presented at the CDS Joint Forum and the Welsh Dental Committee.

We want to gain a balanced and full picture of the situation in Wales so please do take part, whether you feel the pandemic has or hasn't affected your mental health. Your opinions will help us to improve the mental health provision for dentists working in Wales.

Please complete our short survey by Monday 25 October 2021.
