Advanced Ergonomics in Microscope Dentistry
Hands-on Workshop June 26-27th or August 14-15th Charlotte, NC

Learn how to perform any dental procedure with the Dental Microscope without neck or back pain. Traditional dental postures violate all of the science we have on workplace ergonomics and injury prevention. This creates a high incidence of neck and back pain that, too often, will decrease your ability to practice dentistry and earn a living. These two days will teach you how the microscope allows you to practice better, faster and pain free. The microscope cannot be bested in the four pillars of quality dentistry: Magnification, Illumination, Communication and Ergonomics.
