Dentistry - A Game of Twister
It occurred to me whilst assisting the other day, that Dental Assisting gives us Nurses much more fun than we thought. Navigating the right spot to choose, whilst giving your Dentist the premium spot so they can do their job. It can quite often be like a game of Twister.
Large suction on the lingual side with your right hand, small suction in your left hand on the buccal whilst working in am area as small as a tennis ball and working around the dentist who also has his / her hands with the mirror for tongue retraction and the handpiece in the buccal cavity as well. I had joked and said 'wow it really feels like we are playing twister'. He laughed and said 'yes Dani, you really have described it well'. It really gave us a giggle whilst we continued to play Twister throughout the day. Sometimes it's these games that make our day even more enjoyable than they already are. So when you are in this situation, think of which colour and place your going to play next.
Happy Games of Twister ahead.
