A Tour of a Dental Office


 

Ever wondered what a dental office looks like when no one is around? To find out, join Whitney as she tours the dental office where she films all her TikToks.

Whitney is a dental hygienist. When clients enter a dental office, the first person they encounter is usually the dental hygienist.

That means that in the same way that doctors have nurses, dentists have dental hygienists. Their job is to give preventative oral care, clean patients’ teeth, and examine them for tooth damage and disease.

The dentist is the one who will diagnose and specify a course of treatment. As such, a dental hygienist’s training is less than that of a dentist’s. However, most clients spend their time in a dental office with the dental hygienist unless there’s a more serious problem, for example, cavity filling or gum disease.

The dental office where Whitney works has a waiting room, multiple operatory rooms, a restorative room, a lab, a dentist’s office, a break room, laundry, bathrooms, and storage. Different dental offices will have different configurations, but the operatory rooms are the centerpiece of any dental practice.
