Orascoptic Celebrates National Dental Hygiene Month 2021!

A healthy working environment includes tools and spaces that allow a worker to perform tasks safely. Many clinical dental hygienists have limited input regarding the physical configuration of the workspace. This is where the science of ergonomics can help us prevent needless injuries.

The needs of the individual clinician are critical. Healthy postures come from using carefully designed products that are correctly fitted. Customization is the key. The first step is selecting the right frame that fits the user’s facial geometry. The second step is creating custom set of loupes using detailed measurements that match the clinical environment.

Clinicians armed with custom magnification and illumination devices work in greater comfort and can now shift their focus to patient care and tweaking the rest of the clinical environment to support their physical needs.
