Celebrating Dental Assistants, All Week Long!

Because one day of celebration just isn’t enough, we set aside an entire week (March 3-9, 2019) to show our appreciation. Your service to patients gets more important with every passing year as the art and science of dentistry evolves and your role grows in complexity.

That’s why we love the theme chosen this year by the American Dental Assistants Association: “Today’s Dental Assistant — Polished, Poised and Professional.” Are you ever! We thank you for everything you do every single day, from taking X-rays to sterilizing to working with insurance companies and everything in between, all while managing to work chairside too! 

However you spend your week, enjoy and make it a great one! And check out the video of our friends at Beaver Dam Dental in Wisconsin talking about why they love their jobs so much. (Hey, come to think of it, it’s a great week to make a video like theirs for your patients!)

If you haven’t already, it’s also a great week to get to know the ADAA. Visit dentalassistant.org.
