In 2019, the World Health Organization stated that burnout is a “syndrome conceptualized as resulting from chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed.” This course will explore the signs, symptoms, and the effects burnout may have, not only in our dental practices but life in general. Specific stress areas and conditions that may exist in a dental practice will be discussed and solutions one may implement in their practices immediately will be shared. The practitioner will leave the course better informed and equipped to recognize and mitigate the effects of burnout in patients, staff, family, and self.

Learning objectives:

  • Examine the correlation between stress, depression, substance use disorder, and suicide as it relates to burnout in dentistry.
  • Discuss six specific areas in the dental office that may be a source of burnout and how to lessen their effects.
  • List resources plus present mitigation strategies for burnout in one’s practice and life.

This course is designed for the entire dental team.

Co-sponsored by MDA Insurance, MDA Services, and the MDA Health and Well-Being Committee.
