Inhoud: This study examined the extent to which dental professionals have made changes within their practice environments to decrease the potential for developing a cumulative trauma disorder. A survey was disseminated to a sample of 95 dental professionals. The survey addressed the presence and location of pain, changes professionals made within their workplaces, and whether or not these changes were perceived as effective. Fifty two surveys were returned for a response rate of 55%. Results indicated that 96% noted pain during or after work; 88% had made changes in their work practices. Common strategies used to promote health were stretching, good posture, personal relaxation, and instrument maintenance. Use of ergonomic instruments, workstations, and new instrumentation strategies were seen as effective, but rated slightly lower than other categories.
