The Dental Assistant Reference Manual

I recently introduced a Dental Assistant Binder. But, I now have the same information in a ready-made book. Most of my feedback was that people feel it’s a hassle to download, print, and assemble their own binder. And I get that! So I reworked things, and published the information as a customizable manual. Then, I renamed it Dental Assistant Reference Manual. (I couldn’t call it a binder anymore because it’s a book now. 🙂 ) It offers the same templates, but it’s all printed out and ready to roll!

Dental Assisting is a tough but awesome job! I know because I was a Dental Assistant for a long time before I moved to the front office. Being super organized was a big factor in my Dental Assisting success and sanity. If you want to know one of the best secrets of an organized and peaceful Dental Assisting day, then I have three words for you; write stuff down. 

What is in the Dental Assistant Reference Manual?

The Dental Assistant Reference Manual contains a group of printable and customizable templates. It’s divided into three sections; Lists, Setup, and Materials.

  • Lists
    • Opening
    • Daily
    • Closing
    • Weekly/Monthly
    • Lab Tracker
    • In-house Lab Tracker
    • Supply Order List
  • Setup
    • Bur Blocks
    • Instrument Packs
    • Procedures
  • Materials
    • Material Use Instructions

What are the Benefits of the Dental Assistant Reference Manual?

  • Tracking. Track tasks and ensure they’re completed. It’s important to know who completes things, and that no one wastes time doing what may be already done. Checklists are a simple but powerful tool for keeping tabs on things. They are super helpful, especially if you work with a large team.
  • Reference. It’s a comforting source of information when you can’t remember something! Like when you need to set up for a procedure you haven’t done in a while or use a material you haven’t used recently. And, it’s a handy training tool for new hires and temps.
  • Organization. Each doctor has their preferences for operatory setup and the materials they use. If you’re in a multi-doctor practice, you can either flag pages of each section for each doctor or create separate manuals for each one.
