Dentist's Recovery Program

Isolation, the availability of drugs and the physical demands of the dental profession contribute to the risk of substance abuse among dentists. These risks are most commonly associated with higher rates of depression, divorce and suicide among dentists, compared with other health professionals.

Your Responsibility

If you or someone you know is experiencing problems associated with substance abuse, the DAAC is available to provide confidential assistance. You may contact one of the regional DAAC contacts listed below for confidential, non-judgmental, non-punitive assistance. Members of the DAAC support their peers in all aspects of the recovery process, and all information provided to the DAAC is maintained separately from records pertaining to the South Carolina Dental Association and the South Carolina Board of Dentistry.
