Dedicated, engaged dental assistants are the heartbeat of any successful dental practice. 

All across Aspen Nation, DAs are on the front lines in the delivery of our purpose: Helping patients get the care they need, today. They welcome patients with a warm smile. Calm their nerves. Listen to their fears. Reassure them. Work side-by-side with dentists to ensure the delivery of great clinical care in a safe environment. 

And during these strange times – when safety and infection control is a huge concern for so many patients – the role that DAs play is more important than ever.

Since the pandemic pre-empted our typical celebration in March, during the week of September 28, we celebrated Dental Assistant Appreciation Week across Aspen Nation, recognizing the 3,500 critical members of the team whose role is about so much more than taking x-rays, doing digital scans, charting, or sterilizing instruments. 

Here are just some of the amazing DAs that make Aspen Dental such an amazing place to be.
