Dental assistants perform office and laboratory duties and provide different types of patient care. As one of the top 25 projected fastest growing occupations (1998-2008) according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, a dental assistant performs radiographic techniques in all types of dental offices; assists a dental practitioner in all office procedures (taking an impression and making a model of the patient’s teeth for study casts); performs routine office management operations; and has excellent oral and written communication skills. Many procedures performed may expose dental assistants to bloodborne pathogens, potentially hazardous materials and ionizing radiation. As a dental assistant, you must be realiable, work well with others, and have good manual dexterity.
