During procedures and routine checkups, an EFDA gives technical assistance to the dentist. Patient interaction may include reviewing dental history, addressing concerns, suggesting treatments, and discussing the importance of follow-up appointments. After an appointment, the EFDA is responsible for restocking supplies, cleaning up and sanitizing the room, and preparing it for the next patient.
