Dental assistants increase the efficiency of dentists and help provide positive dental experiences for patients. Dental assistants aid doctors by preparing the patient for treatment, sterilizing instruments, passing instruments during procedures, holding suction devices, exposing dental radiographs, taking impressions, and fabricating provisional crowns. This allows the dentist to focus more time on the procedure; the dental assistant effectively becomes the dentist’s extra hands.
