Abstract

Did you know that one-third of dentists who retire early are forced to do so because of a musculoskeletal disorder? Untreated chronic pain can result in physical and financial disaster! 
Now more than ever, during the COVID-19 pandemic, mental stress and heavy PPE can add to physical demands in the operatory, resulting in headaches, fatigue, and dehydration. Due to the multifactorial 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. 
Based on Dr. Valachi's new eBook, this dynamic, interactive webinar introduces ground-breaking education that can help rejuvenate your love for dentistry and transform your life!
