A dental assistant is a very important part of the dental team! A dental assistant performs a variety of duties in the dental office (depending on state regulations):
- Assisting the dentist during treatment procedures
- Taking dental radiographs(x-rays)
- Infection control/sterilization
- Oral hygiene instructions
- Laboratory duties
These are just few responsibilities that a dental assistant performs every day!
