The dental profession is at high risk for musculoskeletal disorders (MSD), with up to 96% of practitioners reporting pain due to clinical work habits. This is due to repetitive movements, bending, twisting, reaching, incorrect operator and patient positioning, and performing repetitive movements in a static posture. These habits not only compromise the health of the dental clinician but also reduces efficiency and production. Ergonomics is the science of fitting the working environment to the practitioner, instead of forcing one's body to acclimate to the environment. Proper ergonomics can increase productivity and efficiency, decrease pain, and lengthen one's career. Allowing the individual to practice pain-free, ergonomics can increase the quality of one's life and work satisfaction. At the conclusion of this CE webinar, participants will learn ergonomic techniques, proper positioning, and product choices to allow them to practice pain-free while also increasing efficiency and productivity.

During this CE webinar, we will
• Identify Unique musculoskeletal disorders that affect dental professionals
• Incorporate ergonomic techniques to maximize efficiency
• Review operator and patient positioning to improve ergonomics and reduce pain
• Learn how ergonomic products allow you to be more efficient   ( disclaimer, bio and commercial disclosure )
