Dental operatory general ergonomics considerations:
Self-derivation of a natural and comfortable posture for best patient care.
The positioning of patients to maintain posture and optimize physical and visual control of intra-oral and inter-oral procedures.
Operatory light, computer, and chair positioning to provide adequate illumination and access from one location with minimal adjustment.
Correctly positioning the dental assistant for efficiency and effectiveness in support of patient care and data entry.
Positioning all equipment and instrument items in the operatory proximal to the practitioner and the assistant to reduce unnecessary exertion, body, neck, and back fatigue.
Maximizing the usage of the mirror when direct vision compromises posture.
Using instrument grips that ensure and improve stabilization and control of performance.
Selection of equipment designed to optimize a comfortable working environment.
Careful selection of magnifying lopes that do not induce musculature pain.
