Dental Assistant Recognition Week (also known as DARW) is held the first full week in March every year. Designated by the American Dental Assistants Association, it is the perfect time to acknowledge and recognize the versatile, multi talented member of your dental team — the Dental Assistant.
Dental assistants are a key part of the dental practice year-round, but they get a special week dedicated to them each year for all the great work they do!
Dental Assistants Recognition Week is scheduled for March 5-11, 2017- a week long tribute to the commitment and dedication dental assistants. Dentists in the United States and Canada will celebrate by honoring their dental assistants for the variety of duties they perform and helping them provide patients with quality dental care.
This year's theme, "Patient focused with passion and purpose." acknowledges the growing importance of dentistry's role in health care and the responsibilities of dental assistants.
Contributing to quality dental care, today’s dental assistants are role models of professional development. Strengthening the entire dental team, they enhance patient satisfaction throughout the world. It is important to let them know they are appreciated!
