Constantly running from one task to the next can leave you little time to pause, let alone read or learn new things. Despite your schedule, there is still an opportunity to de-stress while in transit by listening to podcasts. Here are a few wellness podcasts to add to your audio playlist.

Knowing when to reach out for help is the most important part of your well-being plan. No one can do everything alone, and this is especially true when substance dependency occurs, or emotional, psychological or physical complications arise that could affect your ability to practice dentistry.
If you need help, one phone call is all that it takes.
Search for therapists, psychiatrists, and support groups.
