Dental Assistant Training in Ontario

Would you like to perform essential dental tasks while making patients’ visits to the dentist office more enjoyable? Dental assistants have many duties, ranging from helping the dentist with clinical patient care to administrative tasks, such as scheduling appointments and office management.

As the general population’s awareness of the importance of oral health increases and emerging practices such as implants, orthodontics, cosmetic and geriatric dentistry diversify the field, new dental assistants should enjoy good employment prospects.

What do Dental Assistants do?

Dental assistants typically work in dentists’ offices under the supervision of dentists, following hygienic and safety procedures to provide optimal clinical care and administrative effectiveness. They must understand oral anatomy, dental office administration, radiography and dental pharmacology.

Dental assistant duties may include:

  • Greeting and preparing patients for oral examinations
  • Scheduling appointments and following up with patients
  • Organize and maintain equipment
  • Perform simple dental procedures such as taking x-rays
  • Provide oral hygiene guidance to patients
