The FDA is also working on a dental wellness initiative conceived by President-elect Dr. Jeffery Ottley called HealthyDentist. We have been gathering vital resources to support dentists, their families, and their dental teams with wellness resources that are needed in today's work environment.  

We have adopted Mayo Clinic's 9 Well--Being categories and are making available resources for each of those here.

1. Stress and Resilience

2. Fatigue and Burnout

3. Emotional Concerns

4. Suicidal Thoughts

5. Alcohol and Substance Use

6. Health Behavior

7. Finances

8. Career and Professional Development

9. Relationship and Work-Life Balance
