Dental assistants are quite often the unsung heroes in a dental office. They are the ones who handle the front desk, but you can also see them alongside the dentist, taking xrays, or in the laboratory. It’s no wonder, then, that with the increasing demand for dental care due to population growth, dental assistants are also becoming more and more valuable players in the dental team. They prepare for procedures, maintain sterility of the equipment and the procedure space, and they also deal with emergencies. In addition, they handle the administrative side of things such as billing, scheduling, payment collection, insurance processing and patient chart maintenance. Dental assistants are expected to be able to multitask, have manual dexterity, think on their feet and possess a professional and friendly manner. If you think you have what it takes to maintain a well-oiled dental practice or clinic, and would like to gain and develop the skills needed to become part of a occupational field that is flourishing even in today’s recession, dental assisting may be the right fit for you. Dental assisting is an occupation expected to expand even farther in the coming years, making for job security and many opportunities to get ahead.
