Clinical Assisting Team

The clinical assisting Team at DiNinno Family Dental is a group of experienced professionals with many years of service with our practice.

Our Certified Dental Assistants have many years of experience. They help in preparing the surgical areas and assure that all of our instruments are properly cleaned and sterilized between each use in our state of the art sterilization area.

They are trained in the care and assessment of our patients before, during and after our procedures. They provide home care instructions and help with the discharge of our patients when procedures are complete. We regularly hold emergency preparedness training drills within our office facilities.
