Did you know that one-third of dentists who retire early are forced to, due to a musculoskeletal disorder? Untreated pain can result in physical & financial disaster!
Now, more than ever, during the COVID-19 pandemic, mental stress can add to physical demands in the operatory, resulting in pain. Due to the multi-factorial 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 lecture introduces ground-breaking education that can help rejuvenate your love of doing dentistry and transform your life!
