Title: Do You Have What it Takes to be a Dental Assistant

Do You Have What it Takes to be a Dental
Assistant?
2
  • When one goes to a new dentist for the first
    time, there are many factors that can make the
    difference between a positive and negative
    experience.  In fact, the assessment of the
    office begins long before that person ever sits
    in the dental chair.

  • A new patient enters the office and will
    immediately notice how clean the waiting area is,
    how long they have to wait and how friendly the
    receptionist is. But that is not all that is
    being determined!

  • When a patient visits the office, they are going
    to pay special attention to those who serve them.
    They want to have a dental assistant who is
    friendly, knows what they are doing and someone
    who makes them feel comfortable.

  • Whether or not you were first in your class or
    made the best set of dental impressions on the
    first try, really wont matter, they want someone
    who can put them at ease and let them know they
    made the right in choice in visiting a particular
    office.

  • At Morrison Education Center, our students are
    not just taught the basics of providing quality
    dental care, they are taught proper chair-side
    manner, what the well ran front office should be,
    how to help keep a patient at ease and a variety
    of techniques and tips for interviewing for a
    dental assistants position.

  • We spend time focusing on being able to explain
    dental procedures to patients so that when the
    patient has a question, the dental assistant can
    answer them without sounding ill prepared or
    trained

Here are the top 3 traits we believe every dental
assistant should have
  • A dental assistant must have the ability to work
    with others. Working in a dental office means not
    just knowing how to do the job, but being willing
    to listen and learn from those with whom you work.

  • Communication is more than just talking. A dental
    assistant needs to listen to the patient as well
    as the dentist so that patient records are up to
    date and to ensure that as a dental assistant,
    one does not impede the work of the dentist.

12
  • Chair-side skills can be a deal breaker. A dental
    assistant must not only help put a patient at
    ease, but they need to have good manual
    dexterity, as they will often be using a variety
    of dental tools throughout the course of a dental
    visit. It is also vital, that a dental assistant
    be able to multitask, as this is a normal part of
    the dental assistants workday.
