What does a dental assistant do?
Dental assistants work alongside the dentist during various dental procedures. The job of the dental assistant is to prepare the patient for treatment, set up the operatory, assist the dentist during the procedure, and break down/disinfect the operatory. In addition, dental assistants are trained to take x-rays, take molds and impressions, perform sterilization duties, as well as administrative duties in the front of the office.
