Until next time!
March 4th to the 10th has been designated by the American Dental Assistants Association, along with the American Dental Association, the Canadian Dental Association and the Canadian Dental Assistants’ Association, as the time to acknowledge and recognize Dental Assistants. Contributing to quality dental care, today’s dental assistants are role models of professional development. Strengthening the entire dental team, they enhance patient satisfaction throughout the world. Registered or Certified Dental Assistants ensure the level of professionalism and service that patients deserve.
A certified or registered dental assistant is educated in infection control protocols, exposing and processing radiographs, providing patient education, assisting the dentist during procedures, independently providing intra-oral treatments, performing laboratory tasks and much more. As part of the dental team they are essential to the oral care of Canadians! Recognize your dental assistants during the first week of March.
Feel free to print one of the following posters to raise awareness:
