Description

Seeking a compassionate, dependable, dedicated and punctual mobile dental assistant with a strong work ethic to assist a dentist in providing excellent dental care to nursing home residents in the greater part of Houston. Must enjoy working with nursing home residents. Compensation will range from $15 - $20 per hour commensurate with experience. Typical work hours will be from 8:30 am - 4 pm at the facilities but the dental assistant is expected to sterilize equipment, review and enter progress notes on the same day.

During the days not going out to nursing homes, the dental assistant is expected to work in the lab or administrative tasks. If you were a licensed dentist in a foreign country and able to communicate well in English, we highly encourage to apply. Please apply only if you are serious about your interest in this position. Primary responsibilities and requirements include but not limited to: • Must be able to carry and transport mobile dental equipment • Must be compassionate and mission-driven and willing to interact with nursing home patients in a respectable manner • Willing to be flexible with hours and must be reliable, dependable, responsible, punctual and honest. • Must be able to sterilize instruments at home. Autoclave will be provided. • Manage all dental supplies and work with dentists to place supply orders • Must possess good communication skills. • Must be able to call the patient’s responsible parties and inform them of dental visits and explain treatment plans. • Must be able to write progress notes to be signed by the treating dentist. • Must be able to handle all administrative tasks involving paperwork. • Must be willing to take a Covid-19 test on a weekly basis.
