Job Description for Endodontic Assistant

Endodontics is a specialty in dentistry that involves work on the inner tissues of the tooth. Endodontic assistants' role closely resembles that of dental assistants, although their work includes assisting an endodontist with procedures within that specialty. Patient-related tasks performed by the endodontic assistant include answering patients' questions or concerns, providing them with instructions on pre-operative preparations as needed and walking the patient through post-operative care requirements. The endodontic assistant also assists the dentist by preparing all necessary instrumentation, which includes ensuring reusable equipment is sterilized and providing necessary disposable items as well. During procedures, the assistant provides help in resecting areas and keeping the surgical area clean with suction equipment. The assistant may also administer local anesthesia and help monitor the patient's pain threshold and, if necessary, vital signs under general anesthesia.
