Rising from the chair after performing your final dental procedure of the day, you pause, letting the discomfort in your back settle before walking out. Your neck aches and your shoulders droop, and you realize it’s only Tuesday. It’s time to ask yourself how to improve your posture in the dental clinic.
Dentistry is a physical profession that can take its toll on clinicians if we do not implement appropriate self-care. A key part of preserving your health is creating an optimal dental operatory set-up to avoid unnecessary strain on your body.
