This study explores and evaluates the effects of stress on newly qualified dentists. Both surveys and interviews were used to gather data and investigate the exact nature of stressors as they occur in the context of the research. It became clear that managing workload and dealing with time management is still the most prevalent stressor in dentistry and it affects dentists from the very beginning of their careers. Other prevalent stressors included dealing with difficult patients and meeting society’s expectations for high quality medical care. The study used interviews with more experienced dentists to assess whether or not the nature of stressors changed as young dentists gain more experience in this area of medicine.
