This program is designed to build competence and confidence in the clinical techniques and materials that most impact the practice. Each clinical topic will focus on the skills and knowledge that make an assistant great. Those skills will lower stress and increase the predictability and productivity of routine clinical procedures. Also, it is about building the partnerships within the practice that will lead to exceptional patient experiences. Attendees will leave with an expanded view of what is possible as a chairside dental assistant, a leader in their practice, and an advocate for the patient.
