We have been called upon to do Ergonomic Practice Assessments (EPAs) on behalf of individual clinicians, legal firms, worker compensation groups, and insurance companies.
These assessments of practice ergonomics are most often requested as a means to determine the contribution (if any) of problematic clinical ergonomics to the reported impairment, practice restriction, and/or disability of a dentist, dental hygienist, or dental assistant, and to determine the projected role (if any) of ergonomics training/retraining in reducing the problem, for enhancing optimal comfortable practice, and if needed for rehabilitating the individual as part of a return to work (RTW) strategy.

We have seen professionals in all stages of their careers — students, residents, graduate students, general practitioners, specialists, and experienced senior clinicians.
We have seen professionals who are experiencing pain or discomfort as a result of primary practice-related injuries, or secondary to motor vehicle accidents, sports-related accidents, or primary physiological changes which have occurred with time and body tissue changes.
We have seen professionals who own their own practices, those who associate, those who are employed by other professionals, and those who have retired prematurely from their practices but who wish to return to practice in comfort.
We have seen professionals in all parts of the United States and Canada.
