Stress, pain, injuries, and errors in dental procedures are situations highly linked to dentistry derived from multiple factors making this profession a profession with high physical and mental demand to achieve quality treatment without deteriorating the health of those who perform it, in this case, the dentist, the assistant, and hygienist. The effects of wrong postures, but above all, the lack of knowledge of the proper postures, the modeling of bad habits acquired during the training stage in dental school, and the lack of work guidelines that not only take into account the dentist but also to all the work staff and the methodological organization of dental tasks can be found in the scientific literature. However, it is necessary to see the big picture and change the perspective and work paradigms, in which the use of technology and humans work synergistically within a framework of a systematic approach that simplifies the processes and ways of working to optimize the operator and staff health, maximizing the overall performance while achieving much better clinical outcomes for patients. One of the relevant technologies available is the dental microscope, which has multiple benefits, including the multiple magnification steps, shadow-free coaxial light, the possibility of documenting treatments in real-time through the cameras attached to the microscope, and the operator’s health by promoting a neutral working posture. Many myths surrounding the use of the dental microscope through this reading will be updated, the benefits have a highly positive impact on dental work, and its training and use must be a requirement in education from the introductory stage.
