What Do Our Dental Assistants Do?
At Monterey Dental Centre our Intra-oral, or Level II dental assistants are multi-skilled health care professionals, who possess a diverse knowledge base. Our dental assistants are friendly, professional and perform a variety of clinical procedures, including processing x-rays, obtaining preliminary impressions, providing preventative treatments, along with dental health education, as well as assisting our dentists with numerous dental procedures.
Their skills are constantly evolving as they engage in continuing education to learn about new technologies, procedures and industry standards. Our dental assistants practice universal precautions and infection control, and their utmost concern is their patients’ well-being and comfort.
Dental Assistants perform preventive and prosthodontic intra-oral procedures as well as post-treatment care. This may include temporary crown placement, preliminary impressions, coronal polishing, dental dams, and fluoride treatments. Intra-oral dental assistants expose and process dental radiographs for use in treatment as well.
Our Dental Assistant team also provides oral self-care, post-operative care, nutritional counseling and dental health education to patients. Our dental assistants are an important part of our team, and they help ensure that the highest quality of care is provided at every visit.
