Overview

This review of sit-down, four-handed dentistry is an ideal how-to reference manual for the entire dental health team. Extensively illustrated with step-by-step procedure boxes and "how to" pictures, it outlines the implementation of efficient procedures for a productive stress free clinical environment--i.e., how to practice efficiently and how to select equipment that is ergonomically sound--that will improve productivity and reduce strain. Coverage begins with an overview of the principles of four-handed dentistry and motion economy, moves on to treatment room design, types of delivery systems, and basic equipment selection, and then details the basic techniques used to promote ergonomic concepts during routine dental treatment, such as seating the patient and operating team, instrument transfer, oral evacuation. For dentists, dental students, dental assistants, or dental hygienists.
