One of the biggest reasons our doctors are great at what they do is due to the outstanding team members that support them. Our assistants are responsible for helping the doctors and hygienists provide smooth, efficient treatment. They set up treatment rooms with the supplies and instruments necessary for an appointment. At the conclusion of an appointment, they have the important responsibility of tearing down and disinfecting the treatment room.
The majority of our assistants are what is known as
"expanded duties" dental assistants. They have received training and certification that allows them to participate in your care. They are competent in taking radiographs (X-rays of your teeth), placing filling material, fabricating temporary crowns and much more. Their knowledge of dental procedures is extensive. They can adequately answer many of your dental related questions. Of course, when necessary, the doctor is always available to answer your more in-depth questions.
