Musculoskeletal disease and disability in dentists

Abstract [en]

There is conflicting evidence on the extent that medical conditions, particularly musculoskeletal conditions related to work, cause disability and premature retirement in dentists. Reports based on data from disability insurance in the United States suggest dentists are not susceptible to work related musculoskeletal disability. Surveys of symptom rated debility suggest higher rates of dysfunction, however, as do compulsory employment injury reports from European countries. These data, including information on Swedish dentists, analyzed for this study, tend to put dentists at the higher end of health care professionals in terms of musculoskeletal injury and lost work time. Because compensation patterns and proprietorship vary between national systems, the relationship between exposure and injury and retirement from the active work force may include differing national characteristics.
