Practice Dentistry Pain-Free

Written by
Book Over the past few months, I have been recommending and illustrating simple yet effective stretches that you can do chair side to help alleviate work-related pain.  As you continue your proactive approach to a pain-free career, I suggest adding this book to your library. DentalEZ has long been on the forefront of designing and promoting ergonomic equipment. As a result of our stance, we have been a long-time supporter of Bethany Valachi’s educational efforts in reference to dental ergonomics including use of ergonomic equipment, exercise, and the overall process of working more comfortably. In her recent book, Practice Dentistry Pain-Free: Evidence-based Strategies to Prevent Pain and Extend your Career, Bethany points out how to:
  • Recognize pain syndromes unique to dentistry
  • Implement appropriate interventions for chronic back, neck, shoulder, hand, or wrist pain.
  • Select the proper equipment that fits you and your operatory
  • Correct damaging posture and body mechanics before they cause pain
  • Perform chairside stretches in your operatory in order to prevent micro-trauma
  • Identify which exercises benefit dental professionals and which exercises to avoid
To find out more information on Bethany’s book, visit her website. To learn more about DentalEZ’s ergonomic equipment, please contact your local sales representative.

Going Green: Fresh, Clean Water

Written by
ECO The ECO Dentistry Association, an organization designed to support dentists in the transition of making their practices “green”, recently put out a compelling newsletter on the environmental issue of water, and what dentists can do locally in their own practice to assist on the issues of water pollution and water shortages. As the ECO Dentistry Association points out, the average dental vacuum system uses roughly 360 gallons of water a day AND every 15 seconds a child dies from a water-related disease. So what can you do? ECO recommends a few key initiatives to help reduce the waste of water and water pollution in your practice:
  1. Install an amalgam separator
  2. Use waterless hand sanitizer
  3. Properly dispose of toxic x-ray fixer and sterilization solutions
  4. Distill your water in-office with a countertop distiller
  5. Install a dry-vacuum system
  According to the association, current reports estimate that 3.7 tons of mercury waste enters our water stream annually from dental offices. By installing an amalgam separator, such as the RAMVAC®’s Hg5, the system can intercept microscopic particles and even capture “dissolved” mercury to help keep sewer discharge more than 99% free from heavy metals. As for dry-vacuum systems, RAMVAC’s Bison® and Bulldog® dental vacuums are 100% water-free, completely eliminating vacuum related water and sewage consumption.   For more information on RAMVAC’s “green” product solutions, visit our website. And be sure to check out the ECO Dentistry Association’s website for more Green Saving tips.   Source: Member News. ECO Dentistry Association, November 2009. Volume1-Issue 1
