5 Steps to Solving Work-Related Pain in Dentistry

Did you know that one-third of dentists who retire early are forced to, due to a musculoskeletal disorder? Untreated chronic pain can result in physical and financial disaster! Now, more than ever, in a post-pandemic world, mental stress can add to physical demands in the operatory, resulting in pain. Due to the multi-factorial nature of work-related pain in dentistry, rarely does a single intervention (i.e. new loupes, strength training) permanently resolve chronic pain issues. Research reveals five key areas that are essential to effectively resolving work-related pain in dentistry. The sequence in which these are implemented is also integral to successfully resolving pain. This dynamic and interactive course introduces ground-breaking education that can prevent pain, boost productivity, and transform your life!
