A staggering 80% of hygienists who retire early are forced to due to work-related pain. This research-based seminar for dental hygienists fills a void in the dental education — bridging the gap between dental ergonomics and work-related pain. Discover how equipment selection, adjustment, movement and positioning are affecting your physical health. Implement effective prevention and self-treatment strategies. Hygienists will walk away with techniques they can apply immediately in the operatory to reduce pain, prevent injury and increase career longevity.
