The oral healthcare industry abounds with career opportunities in a wide range of fields and specializations. Dental assistants often play important roles in the daily operations of various clinics which includes specialist disciplines like endodontics.
Endodontists are like traditional dentists who have received additional training in procedures needed to treat severely distressed or badly decayed teeth. Many of their cases call for the endodontist to perform a root canal.
These specialist clinics rely on professionally trained dental assistants to maintain clinic operations, help with patient interaction and assist in certain treatments. A dental assistant in an endodontic clinic might also be called upon to pass equipment during the treatment process or prepare an impression. After the treatment they might also help sterilize equipment, restock supplies and prepare tool trays.
