Dental assistants perform a number of duties in a dentist’s office. Some of their tasks may be clerical. Dental assistants with office duties schedule appointments, keep records, receive payments from patients, and order supplies. When patients come to the office, dental assistants locate their medical records for the dentist’s use.
Dental assistants prepare patients for the dentist’s examination. In addition, they perform chair-side duties, such as handing the dentist the proper materials and tools. They operate the suction hose that keeps the patient’s mouth dry so the dentist can work on it. Dental assistants often operate X-ray machines. Sometimes dental assistants make an impression of a patient’s mouth or teeth. They may also sterilize instruments, develop X-rays, and mix compounds for cleaning or filling teeth.
Most dental assistants work in private offices for one or more dentists. Other assistants work in public health departments, clinics, hospitals, and dental schools.
