Every year, we take a week in March — Dental Assistants Recognition Week (DARW) — to celebrate you, the dental assistant. And that’s because every day you show up for your practice and your patients to ensure they have the safest dental visit possible.

We know many of you have infection control responsibilities and we also know those responsibilities definitely don’t get the applause they deserve. After all, most patients show up and assume everything is safe, from the instruments to the waterlines. But what they, and sometimes even your team, don’t usually realize is the amount of training, attention to detail, and sheer dedication it takes to make it so.

That’s why ProEdge Dental Water Labs is teaming up with DANB this month to bring real recognition to the too often hidden skills and care shown by you and your peers across the county.

So, is there a dental assistant you know who deserves to be recognized?


How You Can Recognize a Special Dental Assistant:

For the entire month of March, ProEdge Dental Water Labs will be taking nominations to recognize and celebrate amazing dental assistants for their dedication to infection control, taking great care of patients, and always being a team player.


Here’s How It Works:

1. Post on Social Media: Create a post on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter detailing why you or another dental assistant deserves a little extra love this month. Tell us how he or she has shown impressive dedication to infection control, patient care, or other office staff. IMPORTANT: Use hashtags #DARW and #ProEdgePro2020 in your post.

2. Complete Recognition Nomination: It’s super simple. Just go to this link — proedgedental.com/nominate — and tell ProEdge how they can reach you and your nominee when it’s time to announce the winners.

3. Winning: ProEdge will review submissions by following the #DARW and #ProEdgePro2020 hashtags, selecting 10 runner-ups and 2 grand-prize winners.
