A04 Fighting Plaque with a Healthy Back (Preventing Work-Related Pain in Dental Assisting)

Lecture Credit Hours: 3 Bethany Valachi, MS, PT, CEAS

Time: 1:30 PM-4:30 PM

Dental assistants face a unique set of musculoskeletal challenges when delivering dental care that can result in pain, injury or a career-ending disability. Developed by a physical therapist and clinical dentist, this dynamic seminar includes, but goes far beyond, dental ergonomics. A fusion of biomechanics, physiology, physical therapy and dental ergonomics--this one-of-a-kind course is as scientific as it is fun and immediately applicable. Assistants will learn numerous strategies in the operatory to prevent and reduce work-related pain. This is an important course for all dental assistants concerned with their musculoskeletal health and career longevity.

Ms. Valachi is a physical therapist, certified ergonomics assessment specialist and co-founder of Posturedontics[R] with Keith Valachi DDS. She has published in many dental journals including JADA and is author of ADAA's home study course The Ergonomics of Dental Assisting.

Lecture Credit Hours: 3 Linda L. Miles, CSP, CMC

Time: 8:00 AM-11:00 AM

Knowing the five basic components to promoting trust and creating a supportive environment is key to feeling comfortable approaching others, learning new things and working efficiently as a team. These issues are imperative to improving the communication within your professional and personal environments. Both male and female dentists and assistants are encouraged to attend, as these issues are pertinent to every dental practice and will provide easy-to-implement ideas to improve loyalty, staff harmony and patient retention!


> How your attitude affects the practice attitude.

> Teamwork--what it really means.

> Tapping into your strengths.

> Eliminating the inner and outer circles.

> Accountability issues.

General Information

About Washington, D.C.

Washington, D.C. is not only the proud home of the nation's capital, it is a sophisticated city in its own right. The heart of the city houses many well-known monuments and inspiring memorials. Just off the mall, yon will find the soul of D.C. with its trendy and historic neighborhoods, like Georgetown and Dupont Circle, along with world class and grass-roots theatres, extensive shopping, restaurants boasting cuisine from every corner of the world and entertainment of every sort. No one experiences Washington, D.C. in exactly the same way and one never gets bored while visiting this magnificent city.

A Note About Booking Hotel Rooms

In order to contract for hotel rooms, the ADAA is contractually obligated to fill its block of rooms. If we do not (and attendees book at other hotels), then we pay exorbitant attrition fees to make up the difference. This in turn can affect registration fees and the number of rooms held for attendees in the future. Support your organization by staying within the block of rooms at the Omni Shoreham.

NOTE: AGD is headquartered at the Marriott Wardman Park nearby.

Cell Phones: Cell phones and pagers should be turned off when courses or meetings are in session.

Dress Code: The dress code for the duration of the meeting is business casual. Jeans, sneakers and athletic wear are unacceptable.
