It’s About Time!

    

Great course content, excellent instructor. It’s about time! This information has been badly needed in dentistry. Finally someone has pulled it all together.

-Allan Tronset, DDS, Seattle, WA

Career Saver

    

With Dr. Valachi’s video courses, I was able to relieve my acute pain cycles, and stretch and strengthen the correct muscles. My career has been extended with her knowledge of ergonomics in the dental field and the proper exercises a dental hygienist needs.

-Leslie Kraus, RDH

Dr. Bethany Valachi is a Genius

    

You are a genius! After suffering with headaches, neckaches, mandibular muscle pain and inner ear pain, I found that following your advice and treating the trigger points in my left upper trapezius staved off the pain. You explained this so well—the information was truly a blessing to me.

-Janice Musacchia, RDH

Best Exercises Targeted For Dental Professionals

    

After 20 years as a general dentist I developed chronic back pain, which drained my energy and desire to practice. From Dr. Valachi’s video courses, I learned that I had actually increased my pain and muscle imbalances with weight lifting that I had assumed would benefit me. I have also incorporated some of her ergonomic suggestions into practice, and I no longer have chronic back pain. Dr. Valachi understands specifically what dental professionals need for preventing pain.

-Kim Pryzgoda, DDS, Fayetteville, NC

Thank you so very much!!!

    

Thanks to your recommendations, I am now working with absolutely no pain and production is up 50% over what I was doing 2 years ago.” Thank you so very much!!

-Stephen Kuennemeier, DDS, Cincinnati, OH

To a Long Career

    

Bethany, thank you for a fantastic program. This is something that none of us are really exposed to in dental school yet is so critical to a long career.

-Richard Rasmussen, DDS, Periodontist, Meeting Planner, Tampa, FL

Saved me from retiring early

    

The WellBody System is a great video course and I am doing almost all her suggestions. I am a practicing dentist with most of the orthopedic problems associated with the profession, and since I have been using the info in the course, my ortho problems have gotten much better. Thank you for this targeted therapy for dentists that is saving me from having to retire early.

-George Marks, DDS, Pompano Beach, FL

Best lecture at Midwinter in years!!! Many helpful tips I can apply every day.

There is hope for those in pain

    

A well presented, evidenced based, comprehensive collection of actionable information. Just with the stretching and exercise program, I’m feeling better every day. There is hope for those in pain.

-Dr. Spiro Kanatselis, Ottawa, ON

My muscles are improving!

    

My muscles in the upper shoulder/neck area are improved. THANK YOU for spreading the word on this.  This education should be in every dental and dental hygiene school.

-Lynn Gardiner, RDH. Milwaukee, WI

Excellent Lecture

    

Thank you for an excellent lecture. Yesterday was the first day in months that I have come home from work without pain!

-Eimear Mithen, RDH, Killrney, Ireland

Loupes that don’t cause neck pain.

    

I have used (brand X) barrel-type loupes for a ‘hundred years’ with nagging neck pain. I switched to the evidence-based, ‘truly ergonomic’ brands you recommended and my neck pain is MUCH better, so I’m thrilled. Thank you!

-John Highsmith, DDS, LVI Clinical Instructor, Clyde, NC

A Consultation that Changes Lives

    

I recently had a valuable ergonomic consultation with Bethany. She brings information to dentists that no other speaker at the ADA Annual Convention has imparted. Her information can change lives, decrease pain, increase longevity of careers and more.

-Dave McMillan, DDS, Layton, UT

A Relevant and Useful Lecture

    

This was one of the most relevant and well received lectures in our 7 years as a study club. Bethany took a potentially dry topic and made it entertaining, educational, and practical. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us!

-David W. Engen, DDS, MSD, Diplomate, American Board of Periodontology

Information You Can Use Immediately

    

It is rare to attend a lecture that provides a lot of information that you can use immediately that is well delivered and have fun at the same time.

-Ross Pross, DDS, Tampa, FL

The Missing Piece to Any Dental Practice

    

This education should be an integral part of every dental school program, as well as every dental practice! Prevention of injuries in dentistry flies under the radar for most of us, until we have pain, and then it is an uphill battle. In spite of yoga, massage and chiropractors I still had pain until I got this education. Posturedontics was the missing piece!

-Dorothy Davis, RDH Portland, OR

Education That Can Add Years to Your Career

    

This exercise program contains training that can add years to your career and allow you to care for your patients optimally. Buying this program could be the most important investment you make in your career.

-Dr. Kenneth Cohn, MD, FACS, CEO Healthcare Collaboration

She Wows the Audience and Her Peers

    

Bethany showcased at our annual Speaking/Consulting Network Meeting and wowed the audience and her peers with her presentation. If you wish to hire a speaker who makes the meeting planner look good, this is the one.

-Linda Miles, CEO, Virginia Beach, VA

Get This Education, And Use It!

    

This education should be required in all dental schools and once a year for all practitioners! Musculoskeletal imbalances are rampant in our profession, and chronic pain seems to be as well. This is the essential information to combat those issues.

-Tooth Fixr

Should be Taught in All Dental Schools.

    

This information should be taught in all the dental schools.

-Robert Micham, DMD, Spokane, WA

Well Body System — a great investment!

    

Don’t wait any longer-invest in your health with this system-your body will thank you! I struggled with chronic neck issues as a hygienist for 20 years and saw countless chiropractors, sports medicine/PT, had massages along the way. They didn’t understand a dental clinician’s operatory or movement. I was always working-out trying to fix the problem but ended up making it worse. The benefits were immediate with the WellBody System. I couldn’t believe the very specific exercises and adjustments I could change for instant relief. Finally someone understood my struggles and had answers..and the research and experience to stand behind it. So much more value than I had even hoped for…you will be more productive at your dental office and at home.

-Sarah Hoover, RDH

Excellent Lecture!

    

Excellent lecture! The speaker was full of information to help in and out of the operatory and presented it in a fun and interesting way.

-Brenda Dixon, RDH, Edmonds, WA

Thank You Dr. Valachi

    

I have been to many of this amazing speaker’s lectures, and have watched her WellBody System. Her first recommendation saved my practice! I cannot say enough about the importance of incorporating ergonomics into a dental practice. Dr. Valachi is the leader in her field!

-Jill Shelton Wagers DMD, Boise, ID

Results of Online Coaching

    

It is now several months after my online coaching sessions with Dr. Valachi.
Thanks to her expertise and excellent knowledge base, I now exercise between patients, understand patient positioning better than ever, practice with a BQE ergonomic chair with left arm support, and have added a 75mm Carr extender to my Global Surgical Operating Microscope. I’ve practiced with a Microscope for eleven years, but never knew about the Carr Extender until Dr. Valachi informed me about them.

As a consequence of all these advancements, most of the time, my posture is excellent and in fact, my neck, while treating patients, is in a more upright position than it is as I write this testimonial on my laptop!

Perhaps most important of all, I consulted Dr. Valachi before finalizing major renovations to my office and thanks to her input as to where to place major fixtures in the operatory, I now have one of the most ergonomic dental offices in the nation.

When I treat patients I feel like I’m sitting at a drum set–everything is within easy reach. I designed it–but Dr. Valachi guided that design.

Thank you Bethany!

-Richard Wilson

Excellent!

    

Your presentation was excellent.

-Ron Jawor, DDS, Academy of Orthodontic Excellence

Dr. Bethany Valachi Understands Us

    

Someone understands us! Can’t wait to put this information to work.

-Kelley Agnew, RDH, Spokane, WA

Saved My Career

    

Several years ago I had so much constant pain in my neck that I seriously considered retiring years before I expected. I tried physical therapists, massage, stretches, etc. It helped temporarily, but I was still constantly in pain. Then I heard about Dr. Valachi and had a Virtual Consultation. She made many recommendations including equipment changes, ergonomic changes in the office and home, and appropriate stretches and strengthening exercises. I now live pain free and still enjoy doing dentistry. Do yourself a big favor and use her materials and/or consultation to increase your professional and personal longevity and enjoyment.

-Steve Kuennemeier, DDS, Cincinnati, OH

Excellent and Humorous Lecture

    

Your energetic lecture delivered with humor and honesty was excellent.

-Mary Wilson, Meeting Planner, Upper Island Dental Society, British Columbia

A Lifesaver

    

This education was a lifesaver for me. The author’s practical knowledge of working in a dental operatory gives her the unique ability to tailor advice for dentists and dental staff. This will add years to my practice!

-Melinda Kuhn, DDS, Reno, NV

My Back is Pain Free

    

Since I instituted Bethany’s recommendations, my back has been pain-free. I now feel I could practice comfortably for many more years.

-Timothy Welch, MD, DDS, Eugene, OR

Everyone in dentistry should take this course.

    

This seminar had more practical advice than any previous course at this conference. Everyone in dentistry should take this course.

-Holiday Dental Conference Attendee

Fantastic CE video course

    

The WellBody System was the best money I have spent. Finally had an explanation for the headaches and neck pain, as well as methods for strengthening/stretching, and improving ergonomics in the office. It is by far the most applicable ergonomics course I have taken related to the field of dentistry.

-Andrew Jennings, DMD, Vancouver, WA

Finally, something that helps!!

    

I started doing the exercises and have been noticing improvement in less than 1 week. In physical therapy they were having me do just about all the exercises you recommend that dentists should avoid. Now I can understand why the exercises were so painful. Finally, something that helps!!

-Cheryl Mitchell-McCarthy, RDH

My lower back issues have disappeared!

    

I attended your seminar a few years ago in Tunica, MS. It was very helpful! I was unaware of the many aspects of ergonomics at the time and early adopted many of your recommendations. My lower back issues have disappeared.

-John A. Smith, DDS Greenwood, MS

You Are A Blessing!

    

I’m already using the stretching and exercise methods. You are a blessing to dentistry!

-Dale Greer, DDS, FAGD, FICD, Dallas, TX

Now practicing pain-free!

    

I love the WellBody System video training series – it has helped my body be able to practice dentistry pain free!

-Alexandria Hammond, DMD, Las Vegas NV

Outstanding!

    

Outstanding presentation—the feedback has been very positive.

-Jim Abblitt, DMD, Program chair, Western Society of Periodontology, Scottsdale, AZ

I wish I had this course 20 years ago.

    

I wish I had this course 20 years ago. One of the most important courses I’ve ever attended.

Must-have Education For Dental Professionals

    

In my humble opinion, this education is a ‘must’ for dental professionals in understanding, preventing and managing the musculoskeletal disorders which are the most common chronic pain and the primary cause of disability of dental professionals.

-Jim Tanaka DDS, Oral Surgeon, El Cerrito, CA

Adjusted Posture and Positions Bring Success

    

Ever since attending your lecture at the Jamaica Dental Conference this year, I have adjusted my posture and seating positions with much positive success! It is all very much appreciated.

-Yunus Ibrahim, Bsc, DDS, Jamaica

Valuable Help

    

I believe that the help I’ve received from you has been more valuable than any of the other help I’ve received in my quest to be fit and pain-free.

-Chuck Tannenbaum, DDS, McHenry, IL

Thank You!

    

Your course has saved & extended my dental career. Rather than undergo surgery, I decided to take your seminar. Your advice has been golden. Thank you! Thank you!

-Page Barton, DDS, Lansing, KS

The WellBody System is excellent!

    

Dr. Valachi’s WellBody System has been so helpful and made me much more aware of my actions and positions during my work day. I really don’t have much pain anymore but when I do get some kinks here and there, I now know how to treat & resolve them. Dr. Valachi is excellent at what she does and I am so thankful for her sharing her knowledge!

-Heidi, RDH

A Very Educational Course

    

By far the most educational and career related course on ergonomics I have yet to attend. Thank you.

-Western Society of Periodontology attendee

You Need to Incorporate this Information

    

I teach ergonomics to freshman dental students and will definitely incorporate this information into our preclinical curriculum. Excellent course, very thorough, great presenter!

-Sharon Cooper, RDH, M.S.Ed, University of Florida College of Dentistry

I Feel Better

    

I have been an RDH for over 28 years…neck pain and shoulder pain have been the norm. Countless hours of massage and chiropractor visits, only to have the pain eventually return. Since incorporating the WellBody System strategies into my work, I have not had the neck and shoulder pain that I normally get. Thanks to Dr. Valachi I now believe I won’t have to retire earlier that I thought. Worth every penny!!

-Deb, RDH

Feeling Better and Better

    

Still feeling better and better….thanks to your lecture. It is a great thing not to be in pain every day. I believe you are spot-on with your program.

-Gary Williams, DDS, Houston, TX

Amazing Knowledge

    

I was amazed at Bethany’s knowledge on operative microscopes and ways to make economical ergonomic modifications to them. She received the longest ovation of any speaker for our dental society. In addition, our translators greatly appreciated her articulate & concise delivery.

-Jean Pierre-Siquet, Endodontist, Meeting Planner, Brussels, Belgium

Fantastic!

    

I am a 53-year-old Dentist, in private practice for over 26 years. I’m also a distance biker, swimmer, and formally a power lifter. As many of you reading this know, dentistry gets harder after you’ve been doing it for 20+ years… Not technically, but physically.

Turns out my normal exercise routine has been simply exacerbating my neck and shoulder pain. After a short time on Bethany’s new program of muscle endurance exercises and stretching, I already see marked improvement.

My only regret is that I did not find this information sooner.

-Bard Levey

The Only Program that Helped My Chronic Back Problems

    

In 30 years of assisting, this is the only education that has helped with my chronic back problems.

-Dawn Opitz, CDA, Tampa, FL

No More Back Pain

    

I have had no back pain since your lecture for our dental society. I can’t tell you the number of congratulations I received for your seminar.

-Christopher Smith, DDS, Meeting Planner, Manhattan, KS

An Excellent Resource

    

Dr Bethany Valachi’s WellBody System video course was the answer to reducing upper back pain. Her resources are of great help and of paramount importance for a successful healthy dental career.

-Ushaina Fanibunda, Endodontist, Mumbai, India

Alleviates my discomfort

    

I have suffered from neck pain and stiffness for years. Even though I’ve attended Dr. Valachi’s seminars in the past which have been beneficial, I feel that the WellBody System has incredible merit. It helps me to focus on my problems at hand and reinforce the exercises which are crucial to alleviating my discomfort.

-Carol Price DDS, Houston, TX

Thanks for Making Us Shine!!

    

“We received nothing but the highest evaluation marks on your presentation and are looking forward to your return. You make us ‘shine’!!”

-Gwen Melton, Meeting Planner, Western Regional Dental Conference

Outstanding Lecture

-Chris Smith

Not Knowing What I Didn’t Know….

    

After watching Dr. Valachi describe some of the “hot spots” for dentists I found myself nodding my head in agreement. My eyes were opened when I started hearing her describe some of the exercises OK for most people but that can be risky for dentists because of the strain many of us already exhibit in typical muscle groups due to the nature of our business. I have already adjusted my exercise plan to include more of what I need, am feeling a difference, and am excited to continue through the rest of Dr. Valachi’s WellBody System. Thank you for sharing your expertise with me.
