At most Dental Readiness Events, dental exams and X-rays only are provided. Dental Assistants and Dental Hygienists are needed to help take bitewing, periapical and panoramic radiographs using digital x-ray equipment, and also may need to help dentist record exam charting. When treatment is provided, dental assistants may be required to assist with restorative, oral surgery, endodontic or instrument sterilization procedures.
