Dental Assisting continues to diversify and expand. Whether working chairside with the dentist, exposing and processing radiographs, managing the business office, teaching or working in insurance, or as a sales representative, dental assistants are vital to the success of the dental practice. Contributing to quality dental care, today's dental assistants are role models of professional development, strengthening the entire dental team and enhance patient comfort and satisfaction throughout the world.
Dental Assistants Recognition Week is scheduled March 4 - 10, 2018. A week long tribute to the commitment and dedication dental assistants exhibit throughout the year.
"Dental Assistants: Advancing the Profession through Collaboration and Leadership" is the theme for this years 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.
Dental Assistants Recognition Week is sponsored by the American Dental Assistants Association (ADAA) and the Professional Dental Assistants Education Foundation (PDAEF).
I hope your class will have time to plan a fun activity. Join us in observing Dental Assistants Recognition Week 2018!
