Main Street Assistants
At Main Street Dental, our level II registered dental assistants (RDA II) are multi-skilled health care professionals who possess a diverse knowledge base. Their education and training, professionalism and experience, coupled with provincial registration and licensing, qualify them to perform a variety of supportive and direct patient care procedures in the dental office.
Registered dental assistants prepare for and support patients for treatment by practicing universal precautions and infection control. They are essentially responsible for maintaining a safe work environment by enforcing the guidelines set out in the Infection Control Protocol.
Registered dental assistants not only work alongside the dentist during dental procedures, but they also independently provide many dental services in the office. These include taking dental radiographs, polishing teeth, providing fluoride treatments, and applying dental sealants, among others.
They also ensure patient comfort and support while in the office, and are involved in providing oral self care, disease prevention, post-operative care, nutritional counseling and dental health education to patients.
