So we talked about a lot today. Dentistry is unique. We have a very unique profession in more ways than one. But in this case, I'm talking about the, the intense physical nature of our job and these risk factors that are working against us. Our job, whether you know it or not is extremely physically demanding. We are using our body in a way that it's not designed to be used. So we're using our body. We've typically got these fixed, awkward postures which our body is meant to move around dynamically through space. And so if we're not pre-planning, if we're not taking these microbreaks and really watching what we're doing with our ergonomics, we will start to experience some damage in our bodies.
In dentistry, we have one of the highest risk professions for disability and early retirement, but I do not believe that it has to be that way, but prevention is key.
