The primary role of a dental assistant is assisting the dentist during procedures by provided tools and materials. Some of the duties of a dental assistant include preparing patients for dental procedures, ensuring the sterility of the dental environment, working with suppliers, helping patients schedule appointments, and teaching patients about proper oral health.
