Why a Dental Assistant is a Dentist’s Best Friend

A dental assistant looking at x-rays of teeth

Dental assistants are a vital part of the dental office and they are typically the first point of contact that
the patient will have at the dentist and can leave a great first impression. In the United States, there are
over 250 million people who see the dentist yearly, dental assistants help make that possible and are by
the dentist’s side every day. Here are just a couple of reasons why a dental assistant plays such an
important role in every dental office.

Dental Assistants fight germs

It is critical that every piece of dental equipment that is used is safe and sterile. Dental assistants are
trained on the best ways to keep the germs and bacteria away with sterilization habits. At Paradise
Dental, our assistants pride themselves on our 11 step sterilization process to ensure that we are not
only meeting but, also exceeding the CDC standards. This wouldn’t be possible without our state-of-
the-art, hands-free center.

Dental Assistants play a vital role in your overall care

When a patient comes into the office, they will likely be greeted by the dental assistant prior to meeting
with the dentist. They have the opportunity to make a patient comfortable and ease any stress or
discomfort a patient may be feeling. In addition, they will help patients be prepared for the exams, take
and develop x-rays, and offer a variety of assistance to the dentist depending on the appointment and
treatment.

At Paradise Dental, we love our dental assistants. We understand the important role that they play in
our office and how they help our team function as they should be. We can’t wait to see you again for
any dental procedure or your continued care appointment. To schedule an appointment at our dental office in Salem, MA or if you have any questions, call us at 781-780-2246 or contact us on our website.

First Class Facility. Modern equipment. Professional service. This is what I have come to expect from Drs' Steve and Helyne and their entire staff.

It's the fanciest dentist I have ever been to. I really like the moisturizing heated hand treatment they offer while you're getting your teeth cleaned. They have lots of other little extras that make this place stand out above the rest. The cleaning and exam were pretty typical, but no complaints. I'm always wary of getting advice to replace fillings when they aren't bothering me, but that didn't happen.

Great experience as always!!! State of the art office with a friendly and professional staff. I would not trust any other practice with my dental care.

My first visit consisted of a consultation with Dr, Helyne Hamelburg whom I found to be very calm and relaxing as I am not a fan of any dental procedure. I will be having gum surgery in a few weeks and am actually not fearing the procedure which I have been putting off for years. Office is certainly state of the art which I had never experienced anything like it. Glad she was recommended to me by another Doctor who knew she would be a good fit for me.

The providers, hygienists, the entire staff are wonderful. I can't recommend them enough. They are efficient, courteous, and the office is inviting. I never thought I would say this about a dental office, but I get relaxed there. You get treated like your the only patient they have.
Jessica O.
Amazing! Accommodating! you can express your fears and they will help you avoid/overcome them! Would recommend them to everyone! oh! and the best part, they have all the state of the art equipment to make the visit fast, painless and less frequent appointments!
