Mental Health & Wellbeing Resources for Independent Dental Practitioners and their Teams

Scotland’s Mental Health Strategy takes a health promoting and preventative approach, with a guiding ambition to prevent and treat mental health problems with the same commitment, passion and drive as we do with physical health problems.

We are acutely aware of the growing impact the Coronavirus pandemic is having on our professional and personal lives.  From the point of view of dentistry, the Chief Dental Officer clearly recognises the importance of supporting mental health and wellbeing, for clinical dentists, and for all members of the dental teams.

This compilation – developed jointly by BDA Scotland and the Scottish Government – highlights guidance and support resources available for you to draw on for help, as and when you may need it.
