Equipping your dental practice.

James Tang

General Dental Practitioner James Tang (CES, MBA, BDS, LSD RCS) has some top tips to equip your surgery with the ergonomic equipment.

Apply this knowledge and start choosing the right treatment unit for your practice.

KaVo dentist element

#Tip 1: Keep everything close by.

All items needed for treatment should be within easy reach to minimise the need to twist and bend. To do this, pre-plan your procedures and have materials, where possible, on hand.

A treatment unit with integrated motors and the ability to adapt to your specific treatment needs not only reduces the need for additional equipment but also streamlines your movements on a daily basis.

#Tip 2: Select the right patient chair.

A chair with adjustable heights enables you to sit or stand during treatment. Even better if this is a suspended chair, allowing freedom of movement, comfortable leg positioning and a relaxed seated position.

A multi-functional - ideally wireless - foot control operated right/left, rather than up/down, can also reduce muscle stress, even when standing.

#Tip 3: Choose a reputable operator’s stool.

Select an operator’s stool that will help maintain a neutral spine while you sit.

Look for a stool with a broad (not round) seat with plenty of positive lumbar support and flexibility to adapt to your anatomical requirements with an adjustable seat and a cylinder to match your seated lower body height.

#Tip 4: Remember illumination and visibility.

Illumination devices with a focussed light beam enable you to look into the mouth of your patient without straining your eyes or needing to bend your neck forward to gain better visibility.

An LED operating light, magnification loupes, fibre optic handpieces and microscopes can all contribute towards improvements in dentist posture.
