How it works….
The dental professional, colleague, or family member contacts the NCCDP for a confidential discussion. If the professional is ready to cooperate, the NCCDP will make a referral for assessment and treatment (if indicated). The assessment process usually takes between 3-4 days and if treatment is recommended then follow-through will be required. After returning from treatment the professional joins the NCCDP by signing a Participation Agreement or a Service Agreement. No two situations are the same and every case is tailored to the needs of the individual.
Benefits of Anonymous Referral and Participation
The dental professional is not known to the Board of Dental Examiners.
The dental professional’s license remains untouched.
The participant has access to a recovery process and a recovery community with proven success rates.
Self referrals are well received and highly recommended. Preemptively seeking NCCDP assistance can only be construed as a positive action should the NC State Board of Dental Examiners later become aware of a problem.
