What stresses you the most?

In an effort to bring you information that is most relevant to your clinical and professional needs, we are launching a mini-survey series. Topics collected will help us search and find answers to your questions as well as research and reviews that address these topics.

The first one in the series deals with dentists’ well-being, an important topic that has been identified by a number of dentists in a previous survey. We would like to know what stresses you and your team the most.
