Smile! It’s Dental Assistants Recognition Week Soon
Dental Assisting continues to diversify and expand. Whether working chairside with the dentist, taking X–rays or managing the business office, teaching or working in insurance or sales, dental assistants are vital to the success of the dental practice. Southeastern Technical Institute is excited to recognize the contributions of dental assistants. Dental Assistants Recognition Week scheduled for March 1-7, 2020, is a week-long tribute to the commitment and dedication dental assistants exhibit throughout the year.
“A 20/20 Dental Assistant – Looking Toward the Future” is the theme for the 43rd annual Dental Assistants Recognition Week. It is a time for dental assistants to receive greater recognition for their own unique and diverse contributions to the dental profession and the dental health care of the public. The American Dental Assistants Association (ADAA) has been the recognized voice of dental assisting for more than 90 years. It remains committed to promoting quality dental health care to the public and enhancing the public image and stature of the dental assisting profession. Dental Assistant Recognition Week is sponsored by the ADAA.
