DENTAL ASSISTANTS: THE “BACKBONE” OF DENTAL PRACTICES.
Begin a great new job with dental assistant career training. Here is a list of why dental assisting professionals are so important:
1-They keep the office on track. “Dental assistants are the pulse of the office,” says Heather, a dental hygienist. “They keep the doctor on track, manage lab cases, and keep our instruments prepared.”
2-They maintain safety protocols. “Dental assistants allow the dentist to provide safe, swift, and friendly dentistry,” says Frances, a dental assisting instructor.
3-They improve patient retention. Dental Assistants are with patients from the time they check in for their appointments until they leave. Assistants are the liaisons between patients and the dental team, communicating key information about procedures, answering questions, and providing aftercare instructions. They also help calm the nerves of patients who are anxious about their visit.
4- They make everyone’s jobs easier. Dental Assistants help everyone in the practice. They help office managers maintain the schedule. They order, restock, and clean equipment so doctors and hygienists always have what they need. They sit chairside during appointments, anticipating the dentist or hygienist’s needs, ensuring they always have the proper tools in hand, and expediting procedures.
