Dentists under stress
A recent report in the British Dental Journal confirms that dentistry is indeed
a highly stressful occupation. Dentists admitted to regularly experiencing
high stress levels with the main reasons being ever increasing levels of regulation
and fear of legal action from dissatisfied patients.
The report suggests that potential solutions to this serious problem must go further
than adopting stress management strategies and should extend to changing the nature
of the working environment.
