March 1-7, 2015 marked Dental Assistant Recognition Week, and we think it’s a great time to highlight the hard work of our very own dental assistants, Dawn,Kelly, Kim A., Kim P., Kristy and Rhonda !
Our dental practice couldn’t run smoothly or effectively without our skilled and friendly dental assistants, all who have been with us ranging from 10 to 30 years. They handle many important day-to-day activities and take wonderful care of our valued patients.
A Day in the Life of a Dental Assistant
You’ve probably met our dental assistants during your regular visits, but have you ever wondered what exactly they do?
Our dental assistants make sure you’re at ease and ready for your visit with our dentists. They are keenly interested in your welfare and are available to help make sure your questions are answered and you’re comfortable for your visit.
Some typical procedures they perform during your appointment include:
• Sterilizing and getting instruments ready for Drs. Turner, Butler and Jordan.
• Taking and processing your x-rays.
• Assisting the dentist throughout your appointment.
Behind the scenes, our dental assistants also perform technical and detailed laboratory duties, including making mouth impressions and cleaning and polishing removable appliances. They help keep the schedule running smoothly and also assist with organizational and administrative tasks.
Listen to what one of our doctors has to say about our fabulous staff!
