Occupational Health:  Preventing and Managing Back Problems Amongst Dental Professionals in Dental Practice

The author recommends “stretching the spine inbetween patients”.
I think there is a traditional view that dentistry should be carried out in the seated position. I am 30 and do all of my routine examinations standing up. The results are identical to examining sitting, with the added benefit of reducing stress on the spine/back. When sitting all day I had back pain. Now that I stand more of the day I have none. If the seated position is know to cause muscoskeletal problems then we should be doing everything we can to avoid the position when possible.

During this webinar Eoin O’Sullivan will take you through his personal journey with digital scanning, explaining how he found himself in a dilemma when he had to replace his first iTero, after he had assumed that the scanner’s capabilities would transition to focus on orthodontics when it was bought out by Align Technology in March 2011. He will share his thoughts about which scanner would best suit his restorative practice, and why he opted for the next generation of iTero over all the other scanners on the market.
