ESMD Autumn School 2019

Ergonomics, four-handed working and magnification


Ergonomics, four-handed working and microscope

Next to every outstanding dentist is a brilliant assistant.

For an economic, ergonomic and pleasant organization of clinical work, four-handed chairside assistance is a huge advantage.  Working systematically and smoothly under a stereo microscope is not feasible without that chairside assistance. Do you want an increase in return, quality and pleasure in your work?  Come, discover and let yourself - together with your assistant - be trained and coached individually like never before, at your own pace and in a clinical setting.

ESMD 2019 Autumn School on 27-28 September brings you to Leuven's cultural temple Museum M, with an additional free admission to a unique exhibition.

On Saturday you and your assistant take over a dental chair from the university dental clinic for a day of training and coaching and fine-tuning of your daily routines.


Your dental life will never be the same again!
