According to recent research focused on dental professional well-being, over 84% of dentists and 26% of dental auxiliaries have reported feelings of burnout. Furthermore, in a 2021 American Dental Association member survey, it was found that the percentage of dentists diagnosed with anxiety has more than tripled over the past two decades.
If left unaddressed, this distress and its consequences can put the health of patients and the lives of dental providers at risk. It's clear that our dental professionals are in need of support. It's time to go beyond dentist burnout and protect the well-being of this vital population.
The Dental Well-Being Index is a validated self-assessment tool invented by Mayo Clinic that measures multiple dimensions of distress and well-being, including quality of life, fatigue, burnout, concern for a recent dental error, and intent to leave the current job.
The interactive online tool allows dental professionals to anonymously measure their well-being in less than one minute, access custom resources, compare their scores to peers’ and national averages, and track their progress over time. The Dental Well-Being Index also allows organizations to collect the data needed to pinpoint the causes of distress and make meaningful changes to maximize the mental health of participants.
