This year is a huge year for the Horizon Family Dental Care Baltimore Dentist Office (http://horizonfamilydentist.com/)
Dental assistants are a key part of the dental practice year-round, but they get a special week dedicated to them each year for all the great work they do.
Dental Assistants Recognition Week is scheduled for March 2-8 and dentists in the United States and Canada will celebrate by honoring their dental assistants for the variety of duties they perform and helping them provide patients with quality dental care. This year's theme, "Dental Assisting: Embracing the Changes of the Profession,"
"The role of the dental assistant has evolved over the years, contributing to quality dental care," said Lori Paschal, president of the American Dental Assistants Association. "Whether working chairside, managing various aspects of the dental office or the laboratory, working in dental sales or educating future dental assistants, today's dental assistants are role models of a professional and progressive force in the field of dentistry."
The American Dental Association, American Dental Assistants Association, Canadian Dental Assistants Association and Canadian Dental Association jointly recognize the observance. Dental assistant associations, dental assisting schools, and U.S. Army and Air Force dental clinics join dental offices in honoring dental assistants during this designated week.
Each year, the ADAA urges dental assistants to recap their activities and successes throughout the week and submit them for possible publication in The Dental Assistant, the ADAA journal.
