    3. 3. Job Environment Stress: Dentist deal with patients that are in pain and have attitudes as a result. They have to try and please patients while keeping up with the planned schedule. “December 3 2007 day 53 - When stress does a number...” by Deathbybokeh on flicker used under Creative Commons License Tuesday, March 10, 2009
    4. 4. Job Environment Time: Most dentists have to work extra hours because on top of treating patients they have to complete paper work on each procedure. While this time consuming task takes place patients can build up. “Hipster PDA” by bigblue on flicker used under Creative Commons license Tuesday, March 10, 2009
    5. 5. Job Environment Patient relationship: Most patients are in pain when around the dental office and as a result they create a negative opinion towards the establishment as a whole. “Day 333 / 365 - Subconscious Anxiety” by: ooojasonooo’s on flickr used under Creative Commons License Tuesday, March 10, 2009
    6. 6. Also... Compared to doctors that work in hospitals dentists are not as well recognized. Some dentists feel unappreciated because of that. Tuesday, March 10, 2009
    7. 7. Overall... The given reasons are mainly key contributers to the decision of suicide, but the main factors are unique to the individual. More then not, the main factor has to take place in order for a decision like this to happen. Unfortunately, these factors are unknown but can be assumed that it is infidelity, family loss, or something of that nature. Tuesday, March 10, 2009
