 Hi, I'm Stephanie, a practicing dental hygienist and ergonomics specialist. I help dental and office workers with their ergonomics and posture through my company, Polished Posture.

In this episode, we discuss hand/wrist pain and how this ONE habit could be the cause of it all. Plus I give tips on ergonomic instruments, my pet peeve about mirrors, and why you need suction devices. I included my favorite forearm microbreak at the end!
