Letโ€™s remember to set up your screen to be as much on โ€œeye levelโ€ as possible so you are not lowering your eyes and straining your neck. Your shoulders/elbows should be relaxed and should not be tense when you are typing. Remember to take breaks. In dentistry, we are taught about oral hygiene as a prevention practice in dental caries.
