Our Wetaskiwin Dental Team Takes Care Of You

Wetaskiwin Dental Team

At Timothy G. Mahoney, DDS, each dental professional on our team allows our practice to operate smoothly and provide the highest caliber of dental care. Today’s Wetaskiwin dentistry article will focus on the duties of a dental assistant.

You probably think of the dental assistant as: “The one who suctions my mouth while the dentist is working on me,” or “The one who attaches the bib around my neck,” and you are correct. However, his/her knowledge of patient care and dental lab procedures is probably more extensive than you realize.

Competent dental assistants work behind the scenes at Timothy G. Mahoney, DDS in Wetaskiwin. They assist Dr. Tim Mahoney during all dental procedures including basic oral examinations, tooth prep and cavity filling, as well as lengthy smile makeovers involving multiple procedures. Our competent assistants also work with our dental hygienists during dental cleanings and patient instruction.

When a dental patient arrives for his/her appointment, the dental assistant has already been preparing for the visit. Before he/she is escorted to a comfortable chair in one of our pleasant patient rooms, the assistant has made sure the room is ready for the particular treatment being performed.

Whether the patient is receiving porcelain veneers, having their teeth whitened, undergoing a routine orthodontia adjustment, or settling in for a two-hour smile redesign with oral sedation, the dental assistant has set the stage for a comfortable and efficient procedure.

At Timothy G. Mahoney, DDS, infection control is always foremost in our minds. Our dental assistants, dentists, and hygienists are vigilant about the sterilization of dental instruments and follow strict infection control protocols. The health of our patients and employees is our highest priority.

Dental assistants may also prepare tray setups, make impressions for restorations, schedule appointments, take x-rays, and maintain and retrieve patient records. They must have a keen eye for detail and an excellent memory as they organize and stock the many different dental supplies in a typical office.

Timothy G. Mahoney, DDS is located at 5116 51 Ave in Wetaskiwin, Alberta. We provide general and cosmetic dental procedures including cosmetic dentistry and cosmetic dentistry. 

To make an appointment for an examination, consultation, or cleaning, call 855-416-4959. Thanks for visiting our Timothy G. Mahoney, DDS blog!
