Launched on 6 July 2020, Dental Practitioner Support is the first national dedicated telephone and online service that provides confidential advice and referral for dental practitioners about their health and wellbeing.
Callers to the service have 24/7 access to an experienced team who can provide advice and referral to dental practitioners on a wide range of health and wellbeing related issues.
The service offers support to all dental practitioners, which includes dentists, dental prosthetists, oral health therapists, dental hygienists and dental therapists. The service is also available to dental students, educators, employers, Australian Dental Council exam candidates and concerned friends or relatives. Anyone calling the service on 1800 377 700 does not have to give their name and can seek support anonymously.
