Looking to enter a new career? Have you thought about getting a career in the dental field? If you’re a compassionate person who loves to work with others and care for their needs than a career in dentistry might be for you. As a dental assistant, you’re the dental support to dentists and dental specialists, as you prep and attend to the patients’ needs before any other dental professional sees them. So what does a dental assistant do?
As a dental assistant, you are a health care support to dental professionals. You will perform many tasks that range from taking x-rays to record keeping and providing patient care from start to finish, meaning before the dentist sees and treats the patient. You can provide chair-side support in dental procedures and exams the dentist is conducting. Depending on the state and certification and licenses you have and are required, you can perform more functions.
