At Designer Smiles in Fargo, each dental professional on our team helps us operate smoothly and provide a high standard of care. Today’s article will focus on the duties of a dental assistant.
You possibly think of the dental assistant as: “The one who clips 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 might realize.
When a patient arrives for an appointment, the orthodontic dental assistant has already been preparing for the specific treatment. Before they are escorted to a chair in one of our pleasant patient rooms, the assistant has made sure the room is ready.
Orthodontist assistants work with patients who are getting their braces put on, or already wearing braces and retainers. Orthodontist assistants help dental professionals install and check devices that straighten teeth and correct other oral problems.
Orthodontic assistants must have a keen eye for detail and an excellent memory as they organize and stock the many different dental supplies in a typical orthodontic office.
At Designer Smiles in Fargo the dental health of our patients is a team effort! Our services include complete general dentistry. Patients from West Fargo and Moorhead also come to our office for cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment today.
