What Is A Dental Assistant?

What Is A Dental Assistant?

PEOPLE ARE COMMONLY CONFUSED about what the exact role of a dental assistant is. What does an assistant take care of vs. a dental hygienist, for example? We want to set the record straight! Our dental assistants are an invaluable part of our team and practice–to be honest, we couldn’t get much done without them!

Dental Assistants Are Specially Trained To Serve You, Our Valued Patients!

Our dental assistants are crucial members of our dental team, providing a spectrum of services to support both dentists and administrative staff. At Smile4Life Dental, all our dental assistants are certified with expanded duties and radiographs specialty. Majority of our assistants have been with us for over 10 years and are simply part of our family.  We have been blessed to have with us dental assistants that have valuable experience due to the fact that many are dentists at their countries of origin.  Moreover, our assistants are trained and well-equipped to assist not only our general dentists, but also all our specialty doctors, such as our Orthodontist, our Periodontist, and our Endodontist, and with their certifications up to date for each specialty.

We are very proud of our dental family. For a look at a day in the life of a dental assistant, check this interesting video:
