Dental Assistants Team
At Dimension Dentistry, our Intra-oral, or Level II dental assistants, are multi-skilled health care professionals who possess a diverse knowledge base. They effectively perform clinical and technical skills. Their education and training, professionalism and experience – coupled with provincial registration and licensing – qualify them to perform a variety of supportive and direct patient care procedures. Intra-oral dental assistants prepare for and support patients in treatment by practicing universal precautions and infection control.
They attend to the patient’s comfort and support in updating patient health histories. Intra-oral dental assistants help perform a variety of clinical procedures. They assist the Dimension Dentists with the administration of anesthetics, general dentistry and specialty procedures.
They perform preventive and prosthodontic intra-oral procedures as well as post-treatment care. These may include temporary crown placement, preliminary impressions, coronal polishing, dental dams and fluoride. Intra-oral dental assistants expose and process dental radiographs for use in treatment.
They also provide oral self care, disease prevention, post-operative care, nutritional counseling and dental health education to patients.
