The purpose of this course is to aid the dental team in the selection of equipment to improve productivity through the efficient practice of four‑handed dentistry. It is recommended that the dental team utilize equipment designed to address the need for productivity and stress reduction. Selection of dental equipment for use in an ergonomic, true four‑handed dentistry practice is integral to the success of the concept. In order for the dental assistant and dentist/operator to work effectively as a team, they must work in a safe, ergonomically sound environment. This course applies the concept of motion economy and ergonomics to various designs of dental equipment and identifies the criteria for equipment selection for a successful productive, stress free practice.
