Mental Health Support

Mental Health Support

We know it’s a time of uncertainty and stress for everyone, so it’s very important to prioritise your mental health.


Dental Protection offers counselling to any members experiencing work-related stress, or stress that they feel could impact their practice.

The counselling service is provided by trusted partners ICAS, who offer a personalised and professional service tailored specifically to your requirements and delivered by experienced, qualified counsellors.

ICAS’s telephone counselling provides immediate access to support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and face-to-face counselling sessions can be arranged near to you and at your convenience, all funded by Dental Protection.

The service is entirely independent and confidential.

Call ICAS on 1800 808 374 or +61 7 3211 8919 from overseas and quote your Dental Protection membership number to book a free session.
