Support for Dental Assistant Recognition Week
Updated: 3/3/2008 2:05:31 PM
 

This week has been designated as Dental Assistants Association Week - a time to "acknowledge and recognize the versatile, multi-talented member of your dental team - your dental assistant".

The American Dental Assistants Association (ADAA) is supported by the American Dental Association (ADA).

The ADAA was established over 80 years ago and is the oldest, largest group representing professional dental assistants - a group which includes clinical personnel as well as receptionists, office managers, practice managers and those working behind the scenes of a dental practice such as insurance and dental product sales people.

A study by the ADA Council on Dental Practice found that dental auxiliaries consistently reported that appreciation for key staff was paramount to satisfaction in the workplace.

The Dental Aggregate website, which is a dental blog for the industry, said: "Many dental offices and staff members celebrate Boss' Day so it's reasonable to think that dentists can and should acknowledge the hard-working assistants and front desk staff each year as well.

The blog suggested that a note, card or flowers was a good way to show appreciation to staff for their efforts each day.

"Without their efforts to help in providing excellent dental care for your patients, as well as working together as a team to assist you in reaching goals set for the practice, where would you be?" the blog read.
