to my protective instrumentation strategies and ergonomic website. Through the years, dental care providers learned how to use conventional intraoral scaling techniques. Now, there are new innovative techniques that utilize both hands and extraoral fulcrums with proper ergonomic positioning to prevent musculoskeletal injuries. My book on periodontal instrumentation and ergonomics demonstrates protective scaling strategies to help protect against injury. Coupled with my book, I am available to lecture to your organization, provide hands-on workshops that qualify for Continuing Education units and offer private consulting.
