Learn how to identify burnout or depression, as well as ways to
manage stress in your daily life.
It is not new news that dentists are prone to professional burnout, anxiety disorders, and clinical depression. COVID-19 has added layers of other issues -- practice owners concerned about their staffs’ safety; associates concerned about job security; and the list goes on and on. But what can we do as a profession to identify, cope, and manage these challenges? This webinar will help attendees identify burnout or depression and offer guidance on where to seek support as well as ways to manage stress in your daily life.
