Dental Assistants Recognition Week

We want to recognize our Dental Assistants! Our dental assistants are top notch with many years experience in the dental field. They receive continuing education throughout the year and are more than just another set of hands in your mouth. Dental assistants help Dr. Alouf in providing more efficient dental treatment by passing instruments during the procedure, holding suction devices, exposing dental radiographs, taking impressions, and fabricating provisional crowns. Dr. Alouf can focus more time on the procedure; the dental assistant then effectively becomes the operator’s extra hands. Tammy, Tracey, and Donna review patient medical history and medications, take blood pressure, and prepare a patient for treatment. They are in charge of sterilizing and disinfecting the operatories. They make sure everything the doctor needs for your dental appointment is there when he needs it. They write up treatment notes in patient charts. They keep track of lab cases and follow up appointments. Our office could not function without our dental assistants!

Thank you for all of your hard work today and every day!
