A very productive and extremely high paced atmosphere.
Dental Assistant (Former Employee) – Midfield, AL – November 13, 2013
A typical day would include; taking a processing radio-graphs, setting up treatment rooms as well as setting up dental hygienists work areas, working chair-side with up to five Dentists, bagging/sterilizing equipment, restraining children for their safety as needed, and filing charts.
I learned how to efficiently take and process radio-graphs, how to assist chair-side with each Dentist, how to determine if a patient needed radio-graphs or whether they had allergies by reading their charts, and how to properly transfer instruments over to the Dentist.
Management was very helpful at this office and often used constructive criticism.
My co-workers worked together as a team to keep the office flowing efficiently.
The hardest part about this job was learning each Dentists method of assisting chair-side. One Dentist would be the exact opposite of another and there were five total Dentists working at this office. Learning all of their methods was a bit stressful, but I did accomplish in doing so.
The most enjoyable part about this job was that it was so fast paced, the day was practically over when I got there. I do enjoy fast-paced work environments.
Fast paced, worked half a day on Fridays, team oriented office.
