“It’s like driving through a stormy night!”

Recently, National Public Radio featured a story on stress felt by American adults. It featured a survey by the Harvard School of Public Health which found that 1 in 4 had a great deal of stress in the previous month, and 1 in 2 in the past year.

How is this stress manifest? Look at the title of this blog which is a quote from this NPR story. All sorts of “should-as” and “could-as” fall by the wayside.

The biggest cause of stress, by far? Poor health.

Another cause? Affording care. (This is increasingly applies to Canada too).

In our Partners in Prevention Facebook campaign, we see this stress amongst older Canadian women.

On social media, it’s largely about the new reality concerning the mouth-body connection and the associated stress that dental care is now an essential service, not one just associated with cosmetic looks. And it’s also largely about user pay.

Stress in the community is so prevalent these days, that the Canadian dental teams which recognize it and respond to it with a new model of dental service delivery, will surely succeed.

A new model? It starts with predictable, painless and affordable care.
