Educational results in ” Dental Assisting Excellence “

For more than 25 years, I have had the pleasure and privilege to be a practicing dental assistant, lecturer, and educator within our profession. During that time, it has been exciting to witness all of the new and expanded roles and responsibilities that so many of my dental assistant colleagues have chosen to embrace. The synergy we create through our live trainings is unprecedented, and it recognizes the many ways that dental assistants support dentists and their patients in achieving successful treatments, experiencing efficiency and comfort, and maintaining excellence in oral care.
