Dental Assisting continues to diversify and expand. Whether working chair-side with the dentist, exposing radiographs, or managing the business office, teaching or working in insurance, or sales, dental assistants are vital to the success of the dental practice. It's a date being remembered this year by the American Dental Assistants Association and Oregon Dental Assistants Association.
Dental Assistants Recognition Week, scheduled for March 5 - 11, 2017, is a week-long tribute to the commitment and dedication dental assistants exhibit throughout the year.
"Dental Assistants: Patient focused with passion and purpose" is the theme for this annual Dental Assistants Recognition Week: time for dental assistants to receive greater recognition for their own unique and diverse contributions to the dental profession and the dental health care of the public.
Check out the ADAA website for ideas on how you might celebrate.
