Dental assistant

The first thing you see teeth when you meet a person? Then there's sure something within dentistry courses you should be.

It is the most important person in a dental office. They accept patients, making ready for the next patient and assists the dentist or hygienist when working on a patient.

It is the dental assistant that keeps the suction hoses, and write it down as a dentist says when he or she looks you in the mouth.

The program is structured as a combination of schooling and work experience. Most students begin training with a school period, the so-called baseline scenario. After completion of the basic course you must have a training agreement (contract) with a dental clinic to complete your education. School students occupy several times a year. Each student has an impact on his own education - every student is assigned a fixed team. The training lasts three years, but the training time may vary depending on which background you have.

These include psychology in the program, which is an important subject in relation to know the patients' feelings about whether there is anything that hurts or if they are afraid to sit in the dentist's chair.

You need to learn all the names of the teeth, so you can write down which tooth it is the dentist mentions in the professional language.

When you come out of a job, there are also some administrative tasks, where you among other things, take phone contact patients if they do not show up so they can get a new time and you get to help take X-rays.

It is very important to be able to stand being close to people.

It is possible to retrain as a dental hygienist and dentist if you wish. So will you all around and get a good broad understanding.
