Being a Dental Assistant changed my view-point in healthcare, I have learned a lot being lead dental assistant. There have been many times in my career as a dental assistant, when I would learn something new, whether it was related to health field or learning something new from my peers. Just when had started achieving the experience in dentistry, I met a major accident, which had major impact on me. I was asked to take bed rest and was advised to not assist as a dental assistant, due to increasing pain in back. Therefore, I had to reconsider about my career planning and development.

Some duties included are helping prepare patients for treatment, passing instruments, and suctioning the mouth while the dentist performs his procedures.

Aspiring to dental practice ownership and the reality of the situation is very different. Dental school does not teach marketing, IT management or a hundred other tasks required to operate a successful practice, but across the nation, dentists struggle with these jobs because they are afraid to take on a business partner and give up their control over the high quality standards they wish to maintain for their patients. Generally, they are too busy to investigate dentist support organizations, or to realize that they can still maintain complete clinical control when partnering with one. With MB2 Dental Solutions, dentists maintain full control over their practice and the care that they provide, while MB2 Dental handles marketing, staffing, IT and more, which leaves dentists free to focus on patient care. In addition, dentists are now free to have a life besides spending all their time at the office, trying to find a new receptionist or keeping up with the latest state regulations.

Introduction Dental hygienists are assistants to the dentist because they get everything ready for the dentist and may even do some work before the dentist sees the patient depending on what the patient is there for.

Dental hygienists play an important role when it comes to informing patients about oral care and water fluoridation. Below is a brief description of the dental hygienists occupation and then the background information about water fluoridation.
Knowing that I will be seeing real patients makes me feel excited and nervous at the same time. I feel prepared because I would have a basic knowledge of using my instruments, knowing what looks normal in the oral cavity or not and how to present myself professionally. I would feel nervous seeing patients because I will not have as much time for cleaning as I did this semester, I would be watched by my instructors very intensely and the patients might become edgy because I will not be as fast as the registered dental hygienist. I understand, that is normal to feel unsure about things in life that might look foreign or new but it is important to stay focused and overcome all the obstacles.
