Our Team Takes Care of Your Child

At Dental Care Today PC – E. Dale Behner DDS, each dental professional on our team helps us operate smoothly and provide a high standard of care. Today’s article will focus on the duties of a dental assistant.

You most likely think of the dental assistant as: “The one who suctions my mouth while the dentist is working on me,” or “The one who clips the bib around my neck,” and you are right. However, their knowledge of patient care and dental lab procedures is probably more extensive than you might realize.

Competent dental assistants work behind the scenes at Dental Care Today PC – E. Dale Behner DDS. They assist Dr. Dale Behner during all dental procedures including basic oral examinations, tooth prep, and cavity filling. Our competent assistants also work with our dental hygienists during dental cleanings and patient instruction.

When a patient arrives for their appointment, the dental assistant has already been preparing for the specific procedure. Before they are escorted to a chair in one of our pleasant patient rooms, the assistant has made sure the room is ready.

Whether your child is receiving teeth whitening, undergoing a routine orthodontia adjustment, our dental assistant has set the stage for a comfortable and efficient procedure.

At Dental Care Today PC – E. Dale Behner DDS, infection control is always a fundamental duty. Our dental assistants, dentists, and hygienists are vigilant about the sterilization of dental instruments and follow strict infection control protocols. The health of our patients and employees is our highest priority.

Dental assistants may also prepare tray setups, make impressions for restorations, schedule appointments, take X-rays, and maintain patient records.

They must have an astute eye for detail and an excellent memory as they organize and stock the many different dental supplies in a typical office.

Our dental assistants help us provide outstanding pediatric dental care.
