The study objective was to reveal incidence, location and intensity of musculoskeletal pain in 88 dentists working in various units of Central Research Institute of Dentistry and Maxillofacial Surgery, as well as to identify pain predisposing factors and preventive measures. High rate (95.9 ± 5.03%) of musculoskeletal pain was revealed, mostly located in cervical region. The pain occurred more often in younger dentists. High incidence of musculoskeletal pain proves the necessity for preventive measures including optical magnification devices.
