Oral health professionals work hard every day to deliver high-quality dental care to their patients. While the job can be incredibly rewarding, dental professionals are also at elevated risk of musculoskeletal (MSK) disorders, due to awkward working postures, repetitive work, and prolonged standing. This can result in damage that can lead to pain, fatigue, and other disorders. MSK can be so severe that it has become the leading cause of early retirement among some dentists.
