The scheduling and charting program Dentrix will show dental assistants what procedure is planned for each room. Each procedure will have different materials and instruments to lay out on the counters, trays, and carts. Each dentist has a different workflow and particular specifications for each procedure. As you work with each supervising dentist, you’ll know what their go-to instruments and layout preferences are. Be observant, ask questions, and if you need to create drawings to help you remember each procedure’s setup, it’s totally acceptable.
