RDH UOR 2013 Are you working in a hand-me-down operatory, sitting on a marshmallow-on- a-stick operator stool, desperately trying to see the distal-facial of # 14, much less #15? Traditional dental hygiene practice accepts pretzel-like postures. Findings from a 2012 landmark study, conducted by the presenters, validate why you feel drained at the end of the clinical day. Dismissing aches and pains in your neck, shoulders and back places your health and the clinical career you love in jeopardy! This fast-paced, interactive session focuses on solid ergonomic principles, effective strategies and actions plans that help modify YOUR risks. Learn how to eliminate dangerous postures, enhance physical health and extend your career. One lucky attendee will win a Crown Seating saddle stool!
