  • Ensure that patients are comfortable in the dental chair
  • Prepare patients and the work area for treatments and procedures
  • Sterilize dental instruments
  • Hand instruments to dentists during procedures
  • Dry patients’ mouths using suction hoses and other equipment
  • Instruct patients in proper oral hygiene
  • Process x rays and complete lab tasks, under the direction of a dentist
  • Keep records of dental treatments
  • Schedule patient appointments
  • Work with patients on billing and payment

They also perform lab tasks, such as taking impressions of a patient's teeth and preparing materials for dental impressions as well as creating temporary crowns.  There are many more tasks that they can perform and duties vary where you work.  

To become a dental assistant, training and certification has become necessary to make sure you are competitive.  Many dental offices work with us for externships because they see the value in having access to new dental assistants in the market.
