The Absolute Dentistry assistants, are Intra-oral, or Level II Dental Assistants, and 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. Intra-oral dental assistants prepare for and support patients for treatment by practising universal precautions and infection control.
Dental Assistants attend to the patient’s comfort and support in updating patient health histories. Intra-oral Dental Assistants help perform a variety of clinical procedures. Our Dental Assistants assist Dr. James Stobbe and Dr. Wesley Arbuckle with the administration of anesthetics, general dentistry, and specialty procedures.
Dental Assistants perform preventive and prosthodontic intra-oral procedures as well as post-treatment care. These may include temporary crown placement, preliminary impressions, coronal polishing, dental dams, and fluoride. Intra-oral dental assistants expose and process dental radiographs for use in treatment. Dental assistants also provide oral self-care, disease prevention, post-operative care, nutritional counselling and dental health education to patients.
