At Jefferson City Dental Care, the dentist does most of the heavy lifting, but not all of it. Each member of our team helps us provide a high standard of care. This article will focus on the duties of a dental assistant.
You probably think of the dental assistant as: “The one who suctions my mouth while the dentist is working on me,” or “The one who attaches the bib around my neck,” and you are correct. However, his/her knowledge of patient care and dental lab procedures is probably more extensive than you realize.
Competent dental assistants work behind the scenes at Jefferson City Dental Care. They assist the dentist during all procedures, from basic oral examinations to lengthy smile makeovers involving multiple procedures. Our assistants also work with our dental hygienists during dental cleanings and patient instruction.
When a dental patient arrives for his/her appointment, the dental assistant has already been preparing for the specific treatment. Before he/she is escorted to a chair in one of our comfortable patient rooms, the assistant has made sure the room is ready.
Dental assistants are valued members of the team here at Jefferson City Dentl Care in Jefferson City MO, and we couldn’t get by without them. Our services include general and family dentistry, and a wide range of cosmetic dentistry procedures. Make an appointment today.
