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, 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 5 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, interactive CE course introduces ground-breaking education that can help rejuvenate your love of doing dentistry and transform your life!
