ADA Resources and Support

For many years dentists have been coming together in an organized way to help each other with personal problems. It started with recovering dentists, and others with a sympathetic understanding of the disease of alcoholism and drug addiction, working to put a system in place to reach out to those who were still suffering. Peer assistance is just what it sounds like, one colleague, spouse or family member being available to assist another with a particular need. Over the years, helping hands have also been extended to dental professionals with depression or other mental health disorders; those whose edges are frayed from chronic stress or burnout. This State Well-Being Program Directory provides a list of state contacts to help connect you to support during your time of need. Additionally, a list is also included of the 2022 Wellness Ambassadors who have offered to be a resource.
