Dental Assistant Team
At Canterra Dental, our Intra-oral, or Level II dental assistants are multi-skilled health care professionals, who possess a diverse knowledge base. They effectively perform clinical and technical skills. 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 practicing universal precautions and infection control. They attend to the patient’s comfort and support in updating patient health histories. Intra-oral dental assistants help perform a variety of clinical procedures.
Dr. Leung’s assistant is Krista, and she works directly with Dr. Leung to administer anesthetics, as well as assist in general dentistry and specialty procedures.
Krista performs preventive and prosthodontic intra-oral procedures as well as post-treatment care. This 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.
Krista also provides oral self-care, disease prevention, post-operative care, nutritional counselling, and dental health education to patients.
