The story behind the toolkit
As a dental professional, we work so closely with our patients, and this means that we are at more risk of occupational hazards like burnout and compassion fatigue. With no bespoke interventions in Dentistry that help not only prevent illness, but equally as importantly, help dental professionals and teams feel happier, and thrive, I launched edition 1 of the Mind Flossing toolkit in 2021. It was successfully received – with over 800 dental professionals benefiting from the toolkit, and organisations like NHS Health England adopting the toolkit for a resilience programme supporting their FD dentists and trainers.
On 4th December 2023, I launched version 2 of the toolkit. All the best bits from edition 1 with the addition of QR codes that direct you to guided meditations, 11 categories, new cards and a more durable box.
