Work wherever it is light and bright. You must be able to see what needs to be done. Sunlight or light from a lamp is usually enough. Use a dental mirror to direct more light into the mouth.

Use a chair that has a back high enough to support the person’s head.

Think about how you can stand and work the most easily.
