Dental Assistant Jobs description

Dental assistants assist dentists in the clinical treatment of patients. They provide different types of patient care, office duties, and laboratory duties. They are required to have good manual dexterity, work well with others, and must be reliable.

In patient care, dental assistants make patients as comfortable as possible in the dental chair, prepare them for treatment, and obtain dental records. They hand instruments and materials to dentists and keep patients\' mouths dry and clear by using suction or other devices. They sterilize and disinfect instruments and equipment, prepare tray setups for dental procedures, and instruct patients on postoperative and general oral health care. Sometimes, dental assistants also prepare materials for making impressions and restorations, expose radiographs, and process dental x-ray film as directed by a dentist. They may also be instructed to remove sutures, apply anaesthetics to gums or cavity-preventive agents to teeth, remove excess cement used in the filling process, and place rubber dams on the teeth to isolate them for individual treatment.

Office duties of a dental assistant include: scheduling and confirming appointments; receiving patients; keeping treatment records; sending bills and receiving payments; and ordering supplies and materials.

A dental assistant performing laboratory duties will: make casts of the teeth and mouth from impressions; clean and polish removable appliances; and make temporary crowns.

Only DentalCrossing consolidates every job it can find in the domain and puts all of the job listings it locates in one place.

  • We have more jobs than any other job board.
  • We list jobs you will not find elsewhere that are hidden in small regional publications and employer websites
  • We collect jobs from more than 4,429,376 websites and post them on our site.
  • We are private, and therefore far fewer people are applying for the jobs on our site than are applying for those on public job boards.
What I liked about the service is that it had such a comprehensive collection of jobs! I was using a number of sites previously and this took up so much time, but in joining EmploymentCrossing, I was able to stop going from site to site and was able to find everything I needed on EmploymentCrossing.
