At Scenic Acres Dental Centre, our Registered Dental Assistants are multi-skilled and knowledgeable health care professionals. They 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.
Our Dental Assistants engage in continuing education to learn about new technologies, procedures, and industry standards. They practice universal precautions and infection control, and their utmost concern is their patients’ well-being and comfort.
They also 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.
They also provides oral hygiene instruction, post-operative care, nutritional counseling, and dental health education to patients. They are an important part of our team, and they help ensure that the highest quality of care is provided at every visit.
