There is no such thing as favorite patient since we should treat them as equal as it is our responsibility to help them with their treatment case and not to judge them personally.
I dont have a least favorite patient. If you listen, and give each patient your undivided attention they should be happy with our service, and be most cooperative. if they shouldnt be cooperative then i just stay calm and be the best at my job.
i dont have no favorites i treat everybody the same
Patients that come in and has examination done but then disagree's to take dentist advive foe explame does not wish to go ahead with that the dentist recommoned for the best of thier dental health but then most of the times patients turn to come back in pain as dentist advice was not taken in consideration.
They are all my favorite.
We treat them all eaqually.
I dont have a least type of patient...i believe think all patients can have there pros and cons but all can be a learing expierence to help one in the future.
Patient with small mouth.
Smells patience and loud patience are not my favorite to deal with?
I dont pick and choose when it comes to my patients, I love them all the same.
I accept people for who they are and always try my best to build positive relationship, with this in mind I can say that I like all types of patients.
I belive its not easy for every patient to be at the dental office and i take that into consideration i don't really have a least favorite type of patient.
The daily challenge in a dental office is winning the patient over, understanding the personalities of the patient and dealing with them avoids having a least favorite, in our field not allowed to have least favorite.
Well being a denatl assiatnt i kno there are diffrent type of people with diffrent personalities. i learned my job is to work with my patient and focus on there health and comfort. and try to treat all my patients with respect and care.
People who pretend they have a toothache, just to get pain medications.
I don't have a least favorite type of patient. Most patients are uncomfortable at the dentist office and I will try to make all patients comfortable and relax some while in the chair.
Probably someone who disagrees with the dentist because it makes.
All patients are different some are more complex but we are to always maintain good interpersonal skills and ensure the patiens they are in good hands.
Dont have a least favourite.
ones with poo poo breath that dont brush and stuff
I think that each patient is different in their own way and adapting to that type of environment is definitely key to succeeding in the dental office.
Patients that have good attitude.
I don't consider having a least favorite type of patient, everyone is different and you have to work with anyone even if they give you a hard time.
There is no such thing as least favorite.
I don't have a type of patient I treat them all equal and don't judge them personally.
A patient that refuses to take care of them self.
I would rate my Proffessional skills as an eight because their is always something new that im willing to learn..

Always apologize and listen to them. Often they just want to be heard and know that their opinion is important.
I made sure I kept a calm tone of voice and I told them I understood why they were upset and asked them what the problem and figured a solution to solve the problem.
Show the patient eye contact and just assure them that you are there and that everything will be fine in a moment.
Talked them through it, be nice and let them calm down ebfore anything
Being calm ,,having the right facila expression listening quietltyand reassuring the pateint that they will be given the best service.
yes i have clamed done upset pateints for example when a child comes in for the first time they are very nervous as they never had such things done like this before,I have tried going through what will be carried out during a cheack up,Have also asked patinet to hold morror and see for them selfs as play with it as this really helps them.
I would say ma' or sir everything will be fine breathing helps sometimes if not that i would tell them if you like you could have a sit out side the room until the Doctor comes in if you like or talk to them about something just to distracted.
I would try to be as sweet and calming towards them trying to reassure them that things will be okay. They i would try to accommodate them in any way i can.
By looking them in the eye calmly reassureing them that eveything will be ok shortly.
Look them in the eye and assure them you are there to help hem.
I am a new grad and have only had few experiences with deling with upset patients. With children i try and change the subject into a more postive note and make them feel like they have accomplished something here at the dental office. For Adults I just like to adress them with comforting words insureing them that there doing great and it will be done soon!
Ask them for a glass of water.ask if i could help him/her to decrease his stress.assure him for better treatment.
Whenever a patient arrives and shows any sign of anxiety I let them know they are in great hands and offer them Nitrous Oxide during treatment. During the procedure I constantly remind them of how well they are doing and, if possible, I offer to hold their hand.
Assure them that is a common and safe procedure and they ate in the best of hands.
With a calm voice and tell the pt I know why they are uncomfortable and that everything is under control and the procedure is going just fine and that they are doing great.
By not making them wait a lot and making sure they're comfortable.
COMPLETE A COMPLAINT FORM, AND FIND OUT WHAT IT WAS THAT MADE THE PATIENT DISSATIFIED . WE WOULD DO ALL WE COULD TO FIX THE PROBLEM FOR NEXT VISIT
Apoligize and ensure them that it wont happen again my job is to make sure they have a positive experience.
Apologize to the patient, and ask what I can do better to make sure their next experience is a positive one.
I wouldn't react in a negative way i would say is their anything i can do to better assure that you are satisfied within this visit.
I would appologize and say sorry your feel that ways and ask them why they feel like they wernt taken care of properly.
Tell them i was sorry. and try to do better. treat the well with kindness.
I would first apologize to the patient and then in a non jugemental way, ask for the dtails of why they were upset, and what could have been done better. When I had the opportunity, I would speak privately with the dentist (while the patient was still there), and tell them what the complain was. It is then up to the dentist to explain or aplogize again to the patient.
I would listen without interupption and thank them for bring that to ma attention. I would apologize for making them uncomfortable and for my behavior,and ask what I could do to make their experience better.
Apoloize and make sure it doesnt happen again.
I will check first.
i would slap their mouth
i wouldn't have no problem about it
I would listen to the pt and then thank them for bringing to my attention and apologize that they feel this way and let the pt know I will fix the problem to make them feel more comfortable.
Apologize and ask them how/what I can do to do things better for them.
The next time they came in I would take extra care and find out what the concerns were on their last visit.
I wouldn't say that I have had a "tough patient". I would say however I have had several circumstances in which I had to use my skills and training to figure out the needs of each patient and do my best to meet their needs to make the appointment run as smoothly as possible. That sometimes can be tough, but it is one of the challenges I enjoy most in this field, making the dental experience as pleasant as possible for the patient.
We see several special needs patients at my previous job, but they are so sweet so it is worth it.
a tough patient that i had to deal with was when i was doig x-rays and my patient would not stop gagging and i had to do some tricks on him and had to hurry so he wouldnt spit it out.
A very old lady had some issues with the insurance an biling ,when she came to the officcce she was fuming .i greeted her with a smile and led her to the managers room .there i waited patiently with a nonchallenging face and a calm attitude.tehn i directed her to the right person and the query was solved in the evening i gave gher a call from the office to see how she was doing and to schedule her future appointment.
a place where i previously worked at appiontments were all maually done,pt came in for thier app but was not found in the book,pt was very upset that he has taken time off from work as he is in pain.Apologized to pt but pt was not happy at all and wanted to see a dentist same day.AS there was more than 1 dentist at that surgery i went to the one of the orther dentist and asked if he could see this pt and dentist said patient can waits a bit he will try his best to see the paient as soon a possible.pt was then very happy to wait and tanked me for asking another dentist to see him.
Once when I was practicing with a patient, I was giving her an impression and she had a real bad reflex, she had started to throw up so I hurried to get her to the trash can and kept my fingers in her mouth the whole time to make sure she could breath and I could keep my impression.
Someone that would sit still in the chair.
There was a young child that kept flailing his arms even under nitrous gas, and he wouldn't listen.
Patients arent that hard to really deal with i always like to make sure i can accomadate them in any way that i can.
To me patients arent really tough to deal with because my patients with them are very smooth sailing.
Someone who felt like things wasn't going there way. They way i deal with is was by acknowledge what was going on and tried to handle it the best way i knew how.
Yes,my dentist made a FPD bridge of a patient.She was happy, but after few days,her father came and misbehaved as he didnt like the bridge,I somehow calm him down.My dentist told him the reason for such limitations in the bridge making.
There was a regular at my exern site that was very irate that I was in the room so I told her I was very sorry and went and got the efda.
I see myself as an outgoing individual. I am very good at meshing with different types of ppl. But I also think its very important not to bring your personal life into work life. At work i am outgoing in a professional manner.
Definitely i respect and beelive in all people no mattre what background or ehinicity they belong toand love to know difffernt cultures and traditions have agood healthy talk.

I think they both are important, but in order to make money you must work.
well both but without work i wouldn't get money so work its more important to me
No amount of money can satisfy me if I'm not happy with the work I do.
Both. In order to make money one must work and in order to work one must love his/her job in order to want to and enjoy going to work to make the money
I believe the most important is work because at the end of the day I will be able to make my patients happy and thats what I want when I come to work is making my patients happy with there dental appointment.
Knowing that im advancing and doing quality work.
Work because without work there would be no money and I'm always willing to work so that I can do my job better and learn more things as time goes by.
Money because it makes the world go around.
Work and money are like siblings in a way, but working hard will keep the money flowing so work is more important.
Work is more important to me because i love and enjoy helping people.
Work is more important because at the end of the day i know that ive helped my patients in making them happy.
I would say a combination of both.
I say both because for one i have to provide a living for me and my kids as well but i say work because where else will i get money from to provide and its very important to better your education.
Well for me i rather enjoy what i am doing rather than worry about money. money is an important faater but loving what u do should come first.
I feel they have the same importance.

If i be there just for suctioning..
Nothing I got into this line of work because I enjoy it.
I honestly do not believe I will dislike any part of being a dental assistant. I love team work,people, and working hard.
The one thing that can be frustrating is how it can cause bad posture and lead into lower back problems from being hunched over all day whether you are assisting the doctor or doing a cleaning.
Not being organized.
I don't have a favorite type of patient as I treat all of my patients equally. But one day I would love to work in a pediatric office because it is so important to implement good dental habits at a young age and I love being a part of helping a child learn about oral health and teaching them skills to achieve it.
Honestly my favorite type of patient would be the kind that doesn't bite :)

Surely detailing is very imp in dental job since u r in peoples mouyth and a slight irresponsibility can cause huge and grave consequences like pulling off the wrong teeth and so on.

Yes i'm very detail oriented. Especially for cleaning and discinfectin.
When I am doing a job that has been asked of me, I strive to do it three times better than I would for myself.

I would also make sure the oplatory was set properly making sure their was nothing missing or out of order. Overall making sure the setting was perfect.
When the instruments were not sterilized enough.
While i find my self very focused on how i clean each opertory, i double check for any blood debry and anything else left in the room after each pursedure
I tyr to keep as organized as I can, the thing I nitpik the most with , is keeping all the cabinet and cupboards clean and orgainzed.
I have neevr done nitpicking.
Yes I do pay attention to detail.No,i donot do nitpicking.
It is helping each other and working towards the same goal.
its mean being there for one another and respecting eachother
Teamwork, for me, plays a big role in whatever I do. Working together to produce great results gives a great positive outlook to clients who come in and it makes them feel comfortable
It means helping one another and working towards the same goal.
When everyone works together and helps each other out when its needed. Like when one person is done with a patient but needs the room clean, the other person will go over there and help clean so they can move on to the next patient.
Working well in a team with your colleages, getting along with them at all times and helping eachother out when it is needed.
It means together we accomplish more!
Without team work nothing can be achieved.
Anticipating eachothers needs.
Team work is when everyone works together makes sure that the dentist priorites are met?
What do you perceive as good costumer service?
team work to me means a team that meshed well with one another, they work well together and wehn someone gives you advice you take it as a compliment and say thank you
In a dental office team work is like the heart of the office without coodination andteam work nothing can be acheived.
it is working hand in hand with a team. collaborating by working together with everybody who is part of the team.
when we work together and help each other
That everyone take responsibility for the part in the daily functions of the office.
If the patient bring up that they had to wait to long! I would appologize and explain to them the docter does the best they can to stay on time sorry for the inconvieence.
I would make sure the next time they will not have to wait they will be seen right away
I'll give patients an advice to book an appointment earlier in the morning, then they would not wait so long.
I would make sure they get seen on time for there next visit.
I will make sure that I assure them the doctor would be with them shortly. Explain them why there appointment is running late.
I would try to reassure them that their visit here with us is very important to our office and the doctor will be with them very shortly.
Explain to them that the doctor is busy helping someone else and will get to them as soon as possible.
Be sure to bring that pt to the back as soon as possible.
Try my best to make sure they are seen.
Make sure that they get in as soon as we can get them in
I would quickly apologize that the pt waited too long and I will keep in my memory bank to make sure the pt does not have to wait.

I have never work in a dental office yet.
Just training that i got while on my exsternship.
I have been a various office positions. The ones in the dental field were during my military career. We would book appointments, take calls, and file dental records. Sometimes the front desk would have to put in procedures on the computers also if the assistants were running behind with patients.
I do not have any experiences in the medical field.
During my internship, I gained clinical exerience in taking oral x-rays, assisting in composite restoration and crown and bridge.
I don't have a lot of experience within the medical office but what i can assure you is that i am willing to learn what it takes to improve the hands on training that i have received during school.

Why a Dental Assistant?
Yes, i am
No, not yet. I just got back from holidays and would really like to sign up for the course. I took the course through school and found it a great skill to have, because you never know what could happen and if you are there you may be able to help.
Do you have any office/administrative experience?
When I had interned at a dental office in Vista, California i Had to multitask everyday. When you are learning that is not always easy, but that is how you learn and grow. I enjoy multitasking, it means im busy, and i like keeping busy.
i had never worked before
i only did one thing at a time
I think any time you are assiting the dentist, you are mult-tasking!
I am assinting a root canal patient and a newly hired assistnat could find some extractions tools so i help her in the set up and printing the post op instructions ,in the mean time the phone is ringing and i see the fron desk person is busy with another customer so i answered the call and booked and appointment he i mad ethe supply list.
It during school when I was working my mangers told me to have this done by this time and another assignment due so I just prioritized my work and got it all done.
During my recent job at a deli store, multi tasking is needed. i have attended to customers, taking their orders, taking their money, getting food that they ordered. in a dental office multi tasking is a must to get procedures done more efficiently. while assisting the dentist, suctioning and handing instruments is how we multi task. it is a must to become a good dental assistant.
I had many hundreds of calls in a day. During this time, I would need to write up a detailed report, contact the test board and dispatch team, and or the inside/outside techs as well as the business office, while making changes to one or more of six computer systems.
I was assisting dentist and had to go get x rays from another room and another assistan asked to help her hold a child to take x ray.
I was an office manager for a roofing company and was for everything from customer services to A/R and A/P
Almost 5 years of experience.I like to work with the patients.I am happy when my patients are satisfied with my job.
In the dental field 2months, as manager for housekeeping in a nursing home 4yrs.
10 years experience.
I have worked with people for forever in customer service. Never in the medical world.
I don't have years of experience dealing with patients but what i do have 220 hours of extership from Baylor Colledge of Dentistry and 18 months of experience working within a hands on training environment dealing with students/patients.
list the qualities that you feel describe a dental professional ?
I've had many great experiences thus far. My two best experiences would be any time I see a patient leave happy and promising a return. Also, when I perform a procedure to the best of my ability keeping the dr impressed with my work.
When the dentist i worked with had enough trust on me and let me put the sutures on a patient.
Been learning alot out of it.
Being able to be detailed in my help to the dentist, being able to cover for someone when things don't go according to plan.
Helping people that really need it.
I love the fact that I get to help people and meet new peple everyday.
I like team work ,that make me work easier.

No, I've always worked well with others. When someone ask me to help them out or get them something, I'm usually the first to help. I don't like to just stand there and watch other people work when I'm capable to help out.
No, there will always be times when people will step on each other's toes. If it becomes a problem it should be addressed professionally and politely. After talking it out and reaching a solution it should be forgiven and forgotten.
No, I always work well with others.
Iv'e always worked well with others.

I would say to them sorry for the enconveinience that usually if you get here a little earlier parking spots are providded. Then i would try to see what i can do to accomodate them.
Try to get here a little earlier for better spots.
I am sorry to hear that, I will talk to the doctor and see if there's anyway we can fix this in the future for you.
Maybe you should walk next time, then you wouldn't be btching at us about the parking!
