Proper Ergonomics = Healthy Hygienists

Throughout this month, you’ll see plenty of pink ribbons as October is widely known as Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In addition to acknowledging this important cause, October is also National Ergonomics Month, which can be an equally important message for any member of the dental team.

With ergonomics in focus this month, I wanted to share a video interview I conducted with Mary Govoni at the recent Speaking Consulting Network meeting in Charleston, S.C. Mary is one of the dental industry’s leading experts on the importance of proper ergonomics in the dental office, and a champion of proper positioning throughout the work day as she has seen first-hand how poor posture and working conditions has shortened the careers of many dental professionals.

In this video, Mary shares some great tips on staying healthy through proper ergonomics in the dental practice, including how scheduling can make a difference. Click below to watch our video interview.
