   As a dental assistant for more or less 3 years, it really was a very unforgettable working experience. Not until training for the techniques and applications did I know how precise and expensive the dental instruments are. In Taiwan, oral hygienists and dental assistants are not certificated to do oral scaling or any intra-oral treatment. However, it is very important and rigorous to educate the patients of tooth brushing, dental flossing and routine visit to the dental clinic.  As a matter of fact, people may wondering what they need to scale the teeth if they already brush them daily. According to NHI *, the ministry suggests to have the oral checkup with tooth scaling every 6 months and to ensure the oral hygiene care (visibility of caries, pain swelling, oral cancer diagnosis) of the patients and prevent the causes of periodontitis by subgingival tooth scaling. Thanks to these recall system, lots of Taiwanese are able to find their problems and treat their disease as soon as possible. (a group amount of Taiwanese citizens suffer in oral cancer due to the abuse of smoking and chewing betel nuts.) Not only we (dental assistants) should learn from the basis of dental materials and manipulation, we also need to know the dental instruments clearly, especially with lots of equipments within a treatment. For example, dental implant surgery. Nowadays, more and more dentists do dental implants in their private clinic. Nevertheless, there is still no such a course or a program to train dental assistants how to manage and support during each phases of the treatment. That is why the dentists really should communicate with us and give us the clear order. To me, every surgery I have to assist is a big challenge with pressure, but I eager to do my best. Starting from taking the CT scan, how to adjust the correct position, make the appointment for the surgery, explain to the patients every stage before and after the treatment, ensure the isolation of the operating room, instruments and biomaterials sterilisation, manipulating dental impression, Shan-Yu Tien, BSHA keywords: dental assistant, oral hygiene, working experience *the article was received in Chinese, translated by P&W | EViDENT Vision from A Dental Assistant - the cabin crew in dental clinic 9TR ) 7PW PONTW [NTNP  VaTR SP ][PN]  SP W NTc )8/ OP *()-3)2)),  till the continuous of case following and revisit for the maintenance. The dentist will need us to have everything clear and understand what we are doing. If we make a mistake, it will affect the outcomes of the procedures. Everything should both accurate and efficient.
