Our Dental Team Takes Care Of You

Custer Dental Team

At Destination Dentistry in Custer SD, each member of our team helps us operate smoothly and provide excellent dental health care to our patients. This post will focus on the duties of a dental assistant.

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

Dental assistants are important members of our team, and we don’t take them for granted. They help us during all dental procedures, including basic oral examinations, tooth prep, and cavity filling, as well as lengthy smile makeovers involving multiple procedures. Our assistants also work with our dental hygienists during dental cleanings and patient instruction.

When a dental patient arrives for an appointment, the dental assistant has already been preparing for the specific treatment. Before he/she is escorted to a chair in one of our comfortable patient rooms, the assistant has made sure the room is ready.

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

At Destination Dentistry in Custer SD, dental assistants play a critical role in maintaining the dental health of our patients. We offer family and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today.

  • …I had no discomfort (with the laser). Yes, an awareness of ’something done’, but no pain what so ever! You did a good job Doc. If anyone wants to ask me, I’ll tell them. It’s time for the old Bard Parker blade to be relegated to the history file. Thank you for your skills.
    —Dr. Art L., M.D.
  • Congratulations on your beautiful Hi-tech office-and on your thirty years of working together! Also you need to know I appreciate the picture you sent me of my teeth. They are absolutely the best pictures I have ever taken. Thank you for the good service you provide.
