A dental office coordinator typically works in the front office area of a dentist's office or clinic. They manage many of the office's needs and functions, with dentists and dental assistants or nurses handling the actual dental care. The coordinator helps the office stay on schedule, schedules new appointments, enters patient data for billing purposes, and generally keeps the office stocked with necessary supplies. Additionally, the coordinator typically oversees any storage and filing of paper records and ensures the office is clean and welcoming for arriving patients.
