At Gastonia Dental Group, each member of our team helps us operate smoothly and provide an excellent standard of care. This post will focus on the duties of a dental assistant.
You most likely think of the dental assistant as: “The one who suctions my mouth while the dentist is working on me,” or “The one who puts 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.
Our patients are readied for treatment by dental assistants. During any procedure, they keep things moving by passing instruments, taking x-rays, holding devices, and recording essential information.
Dental assistants sometimes polish the teeth of our patients. They also explain dental hygiene, and perform any number of behind-the-scenes duties.
At Gastonia Dental Group, dental assistants are essential team members. Our services here include general and cosmetic dentistry. We have extended evening and Saturday hours to accommodate any busy schedule. Make an appointment today!
