Dental assistants perform a variety of patient care, office, and laboratory duties. They sterilize and disinfect instruments and equipment, prepare and lay out the instruments and materials required to treat each patient, and obtain and update patient’s dental records. Assistants make patients comfortable in the dental chair and prepare them for treatment. During dental procedures, assistants work alongside the dentists to provide assistance. The Dental Assisting curriculum provides a foundation in the health science and hands-on training in using the technology necessary to perform tasks typically performed by a Dental Assistant.
