Have You Thanked Your Dental Assistant Lately?
Posted:Feb 16, 2018
Your general dentistry practice would be a very different place if it weren’t for the skilled dental assistants who work there.
Today, we would like to talk about the importance of these professionals who are frequently taken for granted.
Dental assistants not only make your dental appointment more pleasant, they make it effective, efficient, and safe.
You, the patient, are prepared for treatment by dental assistants and, during procedures (such as cavity filling, crown placements, root canals, or teeth whitening), the assistants speed things along by passing instruments, taking x-rays, holding devices, and recording critical information.
Most dental patients would agree that anyone who helps to shorten their time in the dental chair is a person who deserves thanks!
Keeping the dental office clean and sterilizing instruments are other vital duties completed by dental assistants. What would we do without them?
My name is Dr. Steven W. Haywood. I have been serving the Baltimore area since 1987. The proficient dental assistants at my practice, Southern York Smile Care in Shrewsbury, are world-class, along with the rest of our quality staff.
If you are looking for unmatched dental care, please give us a call at 717-235-3871. We can talk about your dental care needs as well as any cosmetic dentistry procedures you might be interested in, such as veneers, dental implants, gum contouring, or a smile makeover.
