Every year for the first full week of March, dentist assistants are acknowledged as a part of Dental Assistant Recognition Week (DARW). Today’s dental assistants play a crucial role in dentist offices across the nation, as they continue to prioritize patient satisfaction and healthy smiles over anything else.
The American Dental Assistants Association organizes this celebratory week every year to recognize the dedication of dental assistants and their unending commitment to making all patients feel relaxed and confident.
We are proud of the outstanding work done by our dental assistants, and that’s why your trusted McAllen dentists at WhiteWing Dental want to acknowledge their contributions and efforts by participating in Dental Assistants Recognition Week.
When you schedule your dentist appointment at our office, we can guarantee that our dental assistants will offer service with a smile, while helping take care of yours.
What Our Dental Assistants Do for Patients like You
Dental assistants are a key part of every dental practice. They have many responsibilities, and our office couldn’t run effectively without them. Below you will find some of the wide variety of duties they perform:
- Setting up Appointments
- Writing down Patient Notes
- Oral Hygiene Education
- Treatment Preparation
- Device Sterilization
- General Anesthesia Assistance
- Suction Device Positioning
- Taking Dental Impressions
- Acquiring X-Rays (With Proper Certification)
Dental health is integral to maintaining overall health, and, as people recognize more and more the importance of oral health, dental assistants should get their fair share of the recognition and appreciation they deserve.
How You Can Show Your Appreciation for Your Dental Assistant This Week
This is the week to celebrate the difference dental assistants make in everyone’s lives. If your child is nervous about visiting the dentist, remind them that there’s someone who will soothe their fears and anxieties and help them understand why keeping up with a healthy routine of brushing and flossing is so important to a healthy smile.
There are many ways to show your appreciation to your local dental assistants: you could give them flowers or a “thank-you” card or note, or you can show your thanks in the simplest way — expressing it in-person.
The next time you stop by our office, show your appreciation to your dental assistant by letting them know their hard work is appreciated. You and your family’s dental health wouldn’t be the same without them.
