Suicide risk among dentists: A multivariate analysis
Abstract and Figures
Dentists are recognized as an occupational group with a high incidence of suicide. Past work, however, has focused only on the bivariate dentist‐suicide relationship. It is not clear whether this risk of suicide is because of occupational stress or sociodemographic factors, such as gender and divorce, which are covariates of dentist status. The present study reassesses the link between dentistry and suicide by controlling for dentistry's covariates. Controlling for sociodemographic factors, dentists still have a significantly higher risk of suicide, indicating that occupational stress may be a source of their high suicidality.
