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.
Dr. Janine Brooks MBE, was interviewed by Nicky Rowlands founder member of the Leadership in Dentistry Facebook group in response to discussions during the COVID-19 pandemic. This group is offering practical help to ensure that team members and their dental practices ride the storm and come out at the other side motivated, educated and prepared to embrace the future.

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. .
