What is a Dental Rover: Sterilization Technician?
Dental Rovers are an integral part of every dental team as they support dentists and Registered Dental Assistants to increase the efficiency of the dental office. Dental Rovers are responsible for general clinic administrative work and maintenance, as well as completing lab work under the direction of the dentist and working in tandem with Registered Dental Assistants. The Dental Assistant Rover’s primary responsibility is to prepare the examination rooms for appointments by sterilizing instruments and ensuring all necessary equipment is ready for the dentist. They also assist the dentist during their procedures by handing them instruments and anticipating their needs throughout the appointment. The Dental Assistant Rover may also be responsible for greeting patients as they arrive. If you have strong communication skills, appreciate problem solving, enjoy working with your hands, and can handle responsibility, a career as a Dental Rover may be right for you!
