Vision, Magnification And Patient Care


This exciting class explores our vision and how it relates to patient care. The use of Magnification Loupes has become the standard of care for Dentistry and Dental Hygiene.

IF YOU IGNORE IT WILL THE PAIN REALLY GO AWAY? HOW DO OUR BODIES COMPENSATE WHEN WE CHOOSE TO WORK IN PAIN?


After twenty years of working with dental professionals, it is now time for Lynn to share her experience of how dental professionals have chosen to live with, ignore, treat, and not treat occupational pain.

Similar to periodontal disease long-term exposure to dysfunctional posture does cause degeneration in our bodies, not unlike gingivitis we professionals are exposed to the early symptoms of occupational pain and often choose to ignore them, hoping it will go away on their own.

Objectives:


•  Identify the early signs of occupational pain
•  Identify early inherent risk factors and common injuries
•  Identify when to use heat, cold, rest, and when to talk with a doctor
•  Review the use of OTC painkillers
