Mental Health Resources

We understand that the unknowns surrounding the coronavirus can cause additional stress and mental fatigue for dental professionals who already experience a high amount of stress and fatigue on a daily basis. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued guidance on managing stress and anxiety, which can be found here:
