LET’S CELEBRATE OUR DENTAL ASSISTANTS!
March 1-7, 2020 marks Dental Assistant Appreciation week. Dental Assistants are valuable contributors to our dental practice business.
They have a wide range of talents from patient care, administrative roles, laboratory functions, guiding the doctor… so we can all run on time, and so much more!
The American Dental Assistants Association (ADAA) selected a theme this year of “Looking Toward the Future.”
Learn more about the dental assisting career at the ADAA website.
