Support For Dental Practitioners

Dental Practitioner Support was launched in July 2020 and is a national health and wellbeing support service for dental practitioners.

Dental Practitioner Support is the first national 24/7 telephone and online service for all dental practitioners. Anyone calling the service does not have to give their name and can seek support anonymously.

Callers will have access to an experienced team who can provide confidential advice and referral on a wide range of issues, including mental and physical health and general wellbeing.

Access Dental Practitioner Support on 1800 377 700 or at dpsupport.org.au

The service offers support to all dental practitioners, which includes dentists, dental prosthetists, oral health therapists, dental hygienists and dental therapists. It is also available to dental students, educators, employers, Australian Dental Council exam candidates and concerned family members and friends.

Please note that this is not offered by Experien Insurance Services. While funded by the Dental Board of Australia, the service is run independently by Turning Point so dental practitioners can have complete confidence in reaching out for confidential support. Turning Point is a leading addiction treatment, research and education organisation based in Victoria.
