Dental assistants have many tasks within the dental office ranging from patient care to record keeping. They provide more efficient dental treatment, by preparing a patient for treatment, sterilizing instruments, passing instruments during the procedure, controlling the suction device, exposing dental radiographs, taking impressions, fabricating temporary crowns, obtaining and updating patients’ dental records, and instructing patients on postoperative and general oral health care. All of these things allow the dentist to focus more time on the procedure and seeing patients.


Opportunities and positions for dental assistants are available and growing. The earning potential of a dental assistant is above average in the healthcare assisting market segment with $37,630 as the median income for a dental assistant in 2017. The field of dental assisting is expected to grow at a much faster than average rate of 19% between 2016 and 2026 and increased awareness of oral health is the driving factor behind this.
