I have been working as a GDP for last 20 years.
However, what I am passionate about is a bit more than just teeth!
Things are tough for everyone now and are likely to be for some time.
Now might be a good time to talk to a colleague about how this is affecting you.
A group of dental professionals who are also experienced/qualified coach-mentors have come together to offer pro bono mentoring support, so you can access support without having to pay for it.
Mentoring support - the here and now - fears, anxiety, strong emotions. Signpost you to more specialist skills, organisations and reliable sources of information. Help you think through what the current situation means for your career going forward once the crisis is over.
As we all know the dental profession is struggling with extremely difficult times, perhaps the most difficult time we have ever experienced.
A group of dental professionals from all registration categories, who are also qualified/very experienced mentors have come together to provide pro bono mentoring sessions for colleagues and final year students.
We provide free teleclasses to DMUK members. A selection of the CPD provided is listed below.

10th September 2020 18.30 - 19.30 Listening for Emotion
Dental Mentors UK aims to provide support for all dental professionals who mentor in the UK and to increase the profile of mentoring in the UK. We will maintain a directory of dental mentors so that dental team members have a quick and easy way to contact a mentor.
We believe that all dental professionals would benefit from regularly working with a mentor from a personal as well as a professional point of view. Mentors are experienced dental professionals who can guide and support you throughout your career. .
