Dental Assisting Program at Lincoln Tech
Dental Assistants perform a host of patient care, office, and laboratory duties; they are responsible for the smooth running of a dental operatory, which includes such duties as sterilizing and disinfecting instruments and equipment, as well as preparing instruments and materials required to treat each patient. They also obtain and update patients’ dental records. While assisting the dentist, assistants work alongside to provide invaluable assistance. Instructing patients on postoperative and general oral healthcare is another important skill.
