Well, being a dentist. Wise words.

Excellent editorial in the current British Dental Journal from Stephen Hancocks.

Here is the final paragraph:

Whether you regard yourself as a repairer or one who needs repairing, an oxygen-mask fitter or recipient of the same it behoves us all to pay attention to our individual health and well-being, to not be ashamed of this approach and to not undermine it in relation to the care of our patients. Policy makers, healthcare organisations and dental practices can all help in fostering good working environments but individual assessment and action is paramount. There is no question that without our help patients’ oral health will suffer and without our own good health we simply cannot offer an optimum service. It is time to look after ourselves too.
