Protecting your Most Valuable Instrument: Your Body!

12 - 1:30 p.m.

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.

Ergonomics is the science of fitting the working environment to the practitioner, instead of forcing one's body to acclimate to the environment. Practicing proper ergonomics can increase productivity, 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 course, participants will learn ergonomic techniques, stretches and equipment choices to allow them to practice pain-free.

Life Saving PPE Essentials: Diet, Exercise, Self Care

1:30 - 3 p.m.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. As dental professionals, we are in a unique position to provide our patients with the highest degree of preventive healthcare. There has been a dramatic shift in lifestyle habits over the last year. Masks, face shields, gloves, glasses and expensive air filtration systems in our dental offices help guard and protect us at work BUT what we do OUTSIDE of our dental operatories to maintain our bodies and health should be a KEY priority in each of our lives.

Following the presentation, attendees should be able to:
1. Discuss how lifestyle habits contribute to the aging process, sleep quality and weight.
2. Integrate emerging science on diet, exercise and self-care into a personal plan of action.
3. Redefine exercise as a method of health maintenance rather than weight loss.
4. Identify healthy eating patterns and lifestyle modifications to promote optimal health.

This first-of-its-kind half-day session will offer dental students, residents and associates the ability to expand one’s lens to fix their focus on long-term success, with the full disclosure of both the benefits and obstacles of owning a dental practice.

Owning Your Dental Practice: The Bridge to Financial Freedom
Mr. Charles Loretto

The program will begin with a presentation from Cain Watters & Associates and NDP Partner Charles Loretto.

Charles will weigh the risks, consider debt and evaluate each option associated with becoming a new owner, entering a partnership, buying an existing practice or working as a partner in a corporate dentistry environment.

 

During this lecture, attendees will understand the necessary qualifications needed before starting a new practice or finding an existing opportunity. It will provide details on the key elements to study before purchasing a practice like location, patient mix, type of transition and more, and how to negotiate the deal financially once you find the practice of your dreams.
