The Dental Hacks Podcast

Almost everything we do is a huge risk for repetitive stress injury! If you don't suffer from a sore neck and back yet, you probably will at some point in your career. In DHD episode Katrina Klein joins Alan to talk about tools we can get to improve our dental ergonomics! Katrina is a hygienist, "ergonomist," personal trainer and bodybuilder which makes her eminently qualified to help dental people with their ergonomic challenges!

Some of the things we talked about:

  • loupes and a headlamp
  • saddle chairs
  • two sided mirrors
  • cordless instruments
  • lightweight handpieces
  • dental microscopes
