Dental Assistant Recognition Week (also known as DARW) is held the first full week in March every year.
Dental assistants are a key part of the dental practice year-round, but they get a special week dedicated to them each year for all the great work they do!
Dental Assistants Recognition Week is scheduled for March 6-12, 2016. Dentists in the United States and Canada will celebrate by honoring their dental assistants for the variety of duties they perform and helping them provide patients with quality dental care. This year's theme, "Our mission is to serve, our passion is to care," acknowledges the growing importance of dentistry's role in health care and the responsibilities of dental assistants.
Take some time to appreciate your dental assistants!
