In a recent survey by the National Institute of Mental Health, 1 in 5 adults in America experience mental illness and those in the dental community are no exception. In fact, according to a 2020 ADA study, 92% of dentists agreed that COVID-19 challenged their mental health.
The ADA is seeking to change this. The goal is to help create an environment of wellness within our dental community and avoid reaching a point of crisis before addressing mental health.
