This post from Advanced Dentistry of Charlotte focuses on the role of the dental assistant.
You may 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, their knowledge of patient care and dental lab procedures is probably more extensive than you realize.
Our dental assistants help during dental procedures including basic oral examinations, tooth prep, and cavity filling. They work tirelessly to provide the high quality of care you’ve come to expect from us.
