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! Today's dental assistants strengthen the entire practice and enhance patient satisfaction around the world. Dental assistants are committed to professional development and quality dental care.
March 1-7, 2020, has been designated by the American Dental Assistants Association as the perfect time to acknowledge and recognize the versatile, multi-talented member of your dental team. 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.
"A 20/20 Dental Assistant-Looking Toward the Future" is the theme for 2020 and acknowledges the growing importance of dentistry's role in health care and the responsibilities of dental assistants.
