PEOPLE ARE COMMONLY CONFUSED about what the exact role of a dental assistant is. What does an assistant take care of vs. a dental hygienist, for example? We want to set the record straight! Our dental assistants are an invaluable part of our team and practice–to be honest, we couldn’t get much done without them!
Dental Assistants Are Specially Trained To Serve You
Our dental assistants are specially trained to serve YOU–our valued patients!
The dental assistants at Rio Rancho Family Dental Care must complete one year of post high school education and receive their certification from DANB (dental assisting national board). Every year, they must also complete and earn 10 CEs (continuing education) for a total of 30 every three years in order to maintain their DANB certification. Their duties include, but are not necessarily limited to, providing patient comfort, setting up the dental operatory for the dentist, taking x-rays, and general assisting of the dentist. Our dental assisting staff here at Rio Rancho Family Dental Care provide steller dental care, and we would not be able to provide the amazing service we do without them. Every member of our dental assisting staff is like a part of our dental family, and we appreciate each and every one of them.
