Ortho Assistant Resume Samples

An Ortho Assistant spends more time working individually with patients, instead of assisting the Orthodontist. The main responsibility and duties are listed on the Ortho Assistant Resume as – providing support to orthodontists with patients who need corrective procedures, preparing patients for procedures, helping them to feel comfortable, taking X-rays, and photographs, creating molds of patient’s bites, sterilizing tools, scheduling appointments; cleaning and polishing the teeth before the braces are applied, and giving the patient-specific instructions on brushing and flossing with braces.

Those interested in this career should be able to demonstrate the following skills in the resumes – manual dexterity; good hand to eye coordination, good communication and listening skills, attention to details; the ability to work independently; and good judging efficiency.
