Dental Assistant Dr McClure (Moore Family Dental) － Amherst, NYDentist: Dr. Craig McClure (716-398-8682) After working in dental labs I have met a lot of dentists and Dr. McClure offered to train me as a dental assistant on the weekends. Greeted and prepared patients for dental examinations. Properly sterilized dental equipment and examination rooms in accordance with infection control policies. Cleaned the rooms throughly after each procedure was finished with a patient. I also worked at nursing homes as a dental assistant because Dr. McClure offers to do work for patients who have trouble leaving their nursing homes.
