Attend this class by live interactive webinar or attend in person at our school

This program is a 1 hour live interactive webinar and a 1 hour clinical program:


Learning Objectives 

*Identify habits that lead to debilitating fatigue and pain.
*Recognize the impact of poor posture and strain and
*how it affects the health of the dental team.
*Identify common chairside behaviors that lead to strain and poor posture.
*Apply environmental and physical solutions that promote healthy posture and movement.

Course Description:

Learn how to reduce the risk of Repetitive Stress Injuries (RSI) and
Cumulative Trauma Disorders (CTDs). While debilitating symptoms may not
be noticeable to dentists just starting out, it’s important for all practitioners
to understand how healthy habits impact productivity, longevity, and quality
of life for the entire dental team. And for those who end their day overly
fatigued, it’s not too late to re-learn optimal techniques around sitting,
moving, and vision. By applying healthy treatment room solutions throughout
the day, you’ll see why you should never endure chronic pain again.

After the one hour lecture, participants have the option to attend the hands on portion of this program in our dental clinic.
