Instrumentation can play an integral role in patient comfort, quality of care, and career longevity. Often we learn instrumentation in school, and that’s it. Then the hygiene appointment becomes a game of beat-the-clock. And we clinicians have the tendency to stick with our top five instruments missing out on new innovations in instrumentation that can improve both the patient outcome and the clinician experience. Learn about instruments and techniques that will help you improve your efficiency and ergonomics and realize that the universal is not as universal as we had hoped!
