The aim of this study was to assess the package of activities that is actually carried out by the chairside assistant, and the activities that should be dropped or added to the package, according to both assistants and dentists. A representative sample of 1034 dentists and their assistants received a questionnaire. Results showed large differences between assistants in kind and number of activities actually carried out. Part of the group of assistants as well as part of the group of dentists expressed their wish to extend the package of activities.
