« 2012 PNDC: Get on the Ball! »

Join Timothy J. Caruso at the 2012 Pacific Northwest Dental Conference for his workshop 150 Years of Modern Dentistry: Survival of the Fittest... Get on the Ball! on Friday, June 15.

For years, dental professionals have been constrained by the limitations of their own work environment and the negative effect on their bodies while paying a high price physically. The concept of caring for our most important instrument, our body, is invaluable and often ignored. Does your fitness affect your function? Can a little chairside prevention enhance your career?

In this hands-on workshop, participants will be lead through a simple series of exercises on an exercise ball designed specifically for dental professionals in order to help combat the muscle imbalances that typically plague seated workers. Join us for this fun and powerful workout that will reeducate your core, improve your spinal alignment and your posture. All participants will receive their very own Evolution Chair, valued at $149!
