Basic Concept 3 units: Maximum ergonomics for your health

Several studies have shown that being a dental professional isn’t very good for your health – and especially not for your spine. The problems are caused by long periods spent in tense and twisted positions when performing dental work. When the upper body is bent forward, more pressure is applied to the intervertebral discs compared to when in an upright posture – whether sitting or standing. Given 8 hours of work per day, 5 days of the week, 48 weeks per year and approximately 36 years of employment, this adds up to 69,120 hours of unhealthy working posture.

Dental Clinic Management: two successful approaches

Many dental clinics today have grown from being one or two-man practices to more complex businesses with a higher number of employees. This shift has added administrative duties to many dentists’ responsibilities. Therefore, dentists who are also clinic owners need to not only be adept at performing dental treatments, but to have management skills as well.

Organic is a widely used term for food and other products today. We live in an era when the concern about health is a priority.
