Our dental assistants are the heart of Thousand Oaks Smile Design. This is because they are so compassionate, especially toward patients who may be a little anxious. Dental assistants are with patients every step of the way, providing them with comfort and clarity during their dental procedures. Their dedication doesn't go unnoticed by Dr. Elbert, the patients and the rest of the team.
Why are Dental Assistants so Important in the World of Dentistry?
Dental assistants are essential to the proper functioning of a dental practice. They ensure that all patients receive the best dental care possible by preparing patients for procedures and assisting dentists with standard dental procedures such as filling, extractions, and root canals.
Educating Patients on Dental Health and Hygiene
Dental assistants educate patients on proper dental hygiene practices and make suggestions for better oral health. Dental assistants, especially those who are certified and eligible to perform patient checkup duties, have extensive knowledge of oral anatomy and use that expertise to help patients.
Dental Assistants Play Key Role in Infection Control
Keeping our patients safe and healthy is our number one priority. Dental assistants are often on the front lines of infection control compliance. Our dental assistants meticulously manage and sterilize all instruments used in patients' mouths and other equipment used during oral procedures.
We LOVE our dental assistants! Thank you for all you do for our patients and dental practice.
