Four-handed dentistry

Four -handed dentistry is a technique in which a dentist works together with a dental assistant or another dentist on the procedures being done in the mouth of a patient. The technique reduces fatigue and improves the effectiveness of dental procedures. 

 Not all cases require four-handed dentistry. Simple cases only requires one dentist while complex procedures like surgical and certain paediatric procedures requires assistance. An advantage of having five dentists in one practice besides having a multi-disciplinary approach on dentistry is that we have sufficient staff for complex procedures.
