Dental assistants are a key part of our dental practice year-round, but this week is a special week dedicated to honoring them for the variety of duties they perform. Dental Assistants Recognition Week (March 5-11) celebrates and honors our hard-working dental assistants for the variety of duties they perform, helping to provide our patients with quality dental care. The American Dental Association is using this year’s theme, “Patient focused with passion and purpose” to acknowledge the growing importance of dentistry’s role in health care and the responsibilities of dental assistants.
According to the American Dental Assistants Association “The role of the dental assistant has evolved over the years, contributing to quality dental care. Whether working chair-side, managing various aspects of the dental office or the laboratory, working in dental sales or educating future dental assistants, today’s dental assistants are role models of a professional and progressive force in the field of dentistry.”
We are fortunate to have a group of dedicated and excellent dental assistants as part of our professional team. It gives us great pleasure to recognize them for all of their hard work and the contributions they make to your overall oral health:
