WELLNESS + RECOVERY
Our Mission: To promote a healthy dental professional, dental team and
their families by providing education, resources and support.
DENTISTS HELPING DENTISTS
We promote total health because we want a healthy member, family and dental team. It saves money and lost man hours, and results in a more satisfied and productive environment. We know dentists, their teams and loved ones are not immune from stress, relational conflict, substance abuse, and physical struggles with weight, nutrition, ergonomics and disease management. This site is designed to help you.
While overall wellness is best, sometimes addiction grips your life causing serious, adverse effects on the professional, the practice, co-workers, family and patients. Call us today for professional assistance. All calls are strictly confidential. We're here to help.
You Are Not Alone

We want to be the dental community’s resource for appropriate referrals in your area. So if anyone in your dental family has a need for a great massage, nutritionist, therapist or treatment, we want you to call us instead of “just Googling it.” Click here to get started.
NEWS & NEEDS
As of July 1, 2017 the DWBF no longer holds the contract for the state-mandated wellbeing program overseen by the Missouri Dental Board. Despite this loss in revenue, the DWBF Executive Team decided we could not turn our back on providing recovery services to our colleagues in need. This program has always been rooted in the concept of dentists helping dentists. We have a history of success and a trusted, experienced administrator in Rebecca Mowen. We had to go on.
Thus we have launched the Voluntary Wellness Program. It is basically the same program without the obligations of the state contract. It is a safe place for any professional provider who needs help. Please reach out to us if you or someone you know is in need. Just call 314-435-1101.
We need your help funding the program! We appreciate any donation you make to the DWBF.
