At Future of Dentistry each dental professional on our team helps us operate smoothly and provide a high level of care. This post focuses on the duties of a dental assistant.

You probably think of the dental assistant as: “The one who suctions my mouth while the dentist is working on me,” or “The one who attaches 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.

Our dental assistants work behind the scenes. They assist during all dental procedures including basic oral examinations, tooth prep, and cavity filling. They also work with our dental hygienists during cleanings and patient instruction.

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

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

At Future of Dentistry, dental assistants are valued members of our team, helping to bring our complete general and family dentistry to patients throughout Greater Boston and Merrimack Valley. We also offer restorative dentistry, and much more. Schedule your next checkup with us today!
