Dental Practitioner Support marks its first year!

The first year of Dental Practitioner Support has flown by and we are so proud of the service and how it has evolved.

‘The past 12 months have been extraordinary for dental practitioners, both professionally and personally,’ Dental Board of Australia Chair, Dr Murray Thomas said.

‘The Board was pleased to launch the service during such a critical time for the profession. We couldn’t have done it without the Dental Practitioner Support team’s positive enthusiasm and drive to be up and running at the height of COVID. Need for the service is ongoing and I urge all dental practitioners to add the 24/7 phone number to their mobiles. You never know when you might need to reach out for health and wellbeing advice or support.'

Throughout the past year we have created a range of resources just for dental practitioners. After all, DP Support is all about supporting you, whether it’s health advice to keep you in top shape physically or tips on coping with challenging situations.
