Learning: Ergonomics

Ergonomics is critical to the day-to-day practice of dentistry. Dentistry is a complex process involving many elements (including diagnosis, communication, management, etc.) but, when you come down to it, it’s fundamentally a manufacturing process. When viewed in this light it just makes sense that the best manufacturer must have the best equipment in the best work environment… And that doesn’t mean the most expensive.

So how do improved ergonomics and reduced range of motion impact the design of a dental office? Take a look, and rethink what’s possible…

Q... I'm already working more hours than I'd like to admit. How am I going to increase my productivity without creating even more stress?

A… Our studies have shown that, even in successful practices, significant time and energy are spent every day on unproductive effort, which delivers no benefit to the patient and no profit to the practice. We have found that careful planning and organization can free up this time and energy, which you can then use to increase your income, spend more time with your family, or could you imagine, play more. Offices frequently experience an immediate 30% increase in productivity once the improvement in workflow of the improved office is complete. Improvements continue well beyond this level as the operator becomes more adept at the system capabilities.
