The intended audience for this event includes:

This course will provide training for the dental team to help them work together in a productive and efficient way. It will demonstrate how to lessen fatigue, stress levels, improve posture and to work together as a cohesive team. It will also improve the dental assistant anticipation of procedures.

Participants will be shown how to make minimum movements throughout the procedure to facilitate four handed dentistry. Emphasis will be placed on accomplishing a smooth flowing process, where each member of the dental team knows what is expected of them.

When conducted properly, fatigue is lessened because the procedures are carried out in a manner where the dentist is required to concentrate only on the dental treatment being carried out (not what is happening around them). Learn how body movements and eye focus can be kept to a minimum, and productivity and patient flow is increased as dental treatment is delivered in a specific routine manner.
