Motivation & Insight Into Dentistry 17
How can you explain the high suicide rate amongst dentists worldwide?
Excellent Candidate Approach
Dentistry can be a stressful career, as they hold a great deal of responsibility, and are expected to delivery high quality work at all times. However, I have a good understanding of what this career entails. I believe that hobbies and a good support network are highly important for all dentists to destress. Currently, my strategies for stress relief include playing the guitar, and playing football on weekends. I am confident that continuing these activities and maintaining close friendships will help me regulate stress in my future career. In addition, ergonomic stress often results in back or neck pain for dentists. I hope that being more aware and actively seeking physiotherapy support or exercise will help mitigate this challenge accordingly.
