High school students, who are interested in a career as a dental assistant should take course in biology, chemistry, and related health topic. The Commission of Dental Accreditation has approved 281 dental assisting training programs. You can choose any of these programs to further enrich your career. Dentists or dental assistants teach the entry-level dental assistant of dental terminologies, names of instruments, how to perform daily duties, how to interact with patients, and other services to help keep the dental office running smoothly. Most states regulate the duties that entry-level assistants are allowed to perform.
Dental assistants work for Oral Surgeons, Dentists and Orthodontists, and are responsible for playing an important part in the oral health profession. They assist in patient care, laboratory duties, office duties. These budding dental professionals make patients comfortable in the dental chair and prepare them for the treatment.
Some entry level dental assistants take dental X-rays as directed by the dentists and prepare materials for restoration and impressions. They also sterilize the equipment and instruments for dental procedures. In addition, these incumbents also schedule appointments. Furthermore, sending bills, receiving payments, keeping treatment records, and order dental material and supplies are also handle by them. Trained and licensed professionals are in high demand now.
