This webinar will begin with a review of previously identified ergonomic risk factors in the dental hygiene profession and a discussion of why these risk factors are problematic. The presenters will then provide a brief overview of the objectives and methods of their recently completed study, which evaluated the physical demands of dental hygiene. This will lead directly into an update on ergonomic risk factors such as the influence of working position on the potential for developing injury and pain in the low back, neck, and shoulder. The webinar will conclude with recommendations to minimize the risk of injury and an update on future research directions.
