CHAIRSIDE DENTAL ASSISTING
What Do Dental Assistants Do?
The primary duties are to assist the licensed Dentists and/or licensed Hygienist during various dental procedures and tasks. This would include taking dental radiographs or X-rays, taking impressions of patients teeth for study casts/models and practicing infection control and sterilization of instruments and equipment. Dental Assistants interact with patients getting their medical/dental history, helping them feel comfortable and providing instructions for oral care before, during and after dental treatments. You will have one of the most diverse and interesting positions within a dental office. DENTAL ASSISTANTS ARE IN DEMAND!
