  • Recognize the risks for work-related injuries that impact the dental profession.

Dismissing aches and pains places your health and the clinical career in jeopardy!

 The upgraded CDC recommendations for the use of additional Personal Protective Equipment during the current pandemic have seemingly contributed to elevated stress levels, resulting in harmful distractions from proper ergonomic practices for many dental practitioners.  It remains to be seen if this will negatively contribute to a rise in the percentage of musculoskeletal disorders that are already documented for this profession.

 This program will address the ergonomic realities resulting from this pandemic, focus on the ergonomic principles of neutral position, discuss effective strategies to eliminate dangerous postures and discover solutions to modify individual risks for developing work-related injuries while practicing within the dental profession
