Practice Dentistry Pain-Free: Preventing Physical and Financial Loss with Evidence-Based Ergonomics

Forced early retirement, workers comp claims and sick leave can lead to a financial disaster. Pain is not a necessary by-product of delivering dental care! Effectively preventing work-related pain requires addressing numerous risk factors. Valachi combines 20 years of dental ergonomic experience and research to teach powerful strategies in the operatory to prevent pain and ensure career longevity. The session will highlight how to: implement evidence-based interventions for chronic back, neck and shoulder pain; select loupes, stools and chairs that will improve health; and implement new positioning guidelines to ensure optimal posture.
