Dental Assistant

Studies say the smile is the first feature we notice about each other. Dental Assistants see plenty of smiles - and what's behind them. Dental Assistants are not hygienists. They don't clean patients' teeth but they do make casts, or impressions, of teeth; keep equipment clean and sterilized; work along side dentists, handing them equipment and keeping patients' mouths clean and dry; and teach patients how to take care of their teeth.
