* Confidental – Need a helping hand?

Our purpose is to provide emotional first aid for dentists in distress.

We can allow you to offload and talk through your issues in complete confidence with a fellow dentist; we will then offer you signposting to further useful organisations if appropriate.

Sometimes all we are needed to do is listen!  We are there 24/7 and 365 days a year…
