3. Surgical Instruments

3-29. PREOPERATIVE TREATMENT

In some cases, the dentist may wish the next patient to have some form of medication before surgery and may have the patient come in early for this purpose. The dental assistant may be expected to make a record of patients requiring such medication, notifying the dentist of the patient's arrival, reminding him of the need for medication, and recording the medications given. The oral surgery assistant should be familiar with the uses, doses, and effects of these and other drugs important in the practice of oral surgery.
