Dental Anxiety

Dental anxiety is the term used to describe anxiety, fear or stress associated with a dental setting. Being nervous or even scared to visit the dentist can result in delaying or avoiding dental treatment. It can be associated with certain triggers such as needles, drills or the dental setting in general.

Dave Casey is one to watch!!

Brian from WWI said “What a year 2020 was. One of the positives to take from the turmoil has been the focus that has been placed on wellbeing and mental health. 2020 was a year when I first noticed TV and radio ads mentioning the importance of looking after our mental health. It was also a year where many Irish organisations properly prioritised the wellbeing of their employees. If you don’t have healthy people, you can’t have a healthy business. Is the penny finally dropping?

World Mental Health Day – 10th October 2020

In one direction, the prospect of dental treatment can lead to anxiety and phobia. In the other, many psychiatric disorders, such as severe mental illness, affective disorders, and eating disorders, are associated with dental disease. These include dental erosion, tooth fracture, dental decay, and gum disease. Left untreated, dental diseases can lead to tooth loss so much so that people with severe mental illness have 2 and a half times the likelihood of losing all their teeth, compared with the general population.

Sustainability for a Healthy planet

Small businesses can play a crucial role as drivers of innovation and as engines of economic growth and employment. Sustainable consumption represents a common challenge for public authorities (at all levels) and consumers, as well as small businesses.

Meeting the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations is a balancing act. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a collection of 17 global goals designed to be a ‘blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all’. The SDGs, set in 2015, are intended to be achieved by the year 2030 and small workplaces have a role to play.

Progress through positivity

The World Health Organisation is encouraging people to seek information from legitimate sources only, stating we need to connect safely with those who are isolated, and to curb exposure to news that makes them anxious or distressed.

The sudden and near-constant stream of new reports about Covid-19 can cause anyone to feel worried. Facts minimise fear and accessing only reliable information can help to ease anxiety and aid in the promotion of positive mental health.
