Summary

Canadian Dental Hygienists are commonly affected by work-related injuries, pain and discomfort. 24% of respondents in the CDHA 2011 job market & employment survey reported having an occupational injury or medical issue related to their work as a dental hygienist. Issues and injuries to the shoulder, back and neck are most prevalent. Posture, repetition and force exertion are common risk factors for neuro-musculoskeletal (NMSK) in the dental hygiene profession. The CDHA in conjunction with the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College (CMCC) are providing a three-part webinar series to review common injuries in dental hygienists, discuss work-related and personal risk factors, as well as offer ergonomic modifications, exercises and other solutions in order to minimize your risk.

Participation in all 3 webinars is recommended, but is not a requirement.

The three webinars are:

  • Webinar I: What is neuro-musculoskeletal disorder? Am I at risk?
  • Webinar II: How can I protect myself from NMSKs?
  • Webinar III: NMSK fitness care routine
