As a dentist, would you have to take vitals? I know you would have to take a patient's blood pressure sometimes. Do professors walk you through when you have to?

In dental school, we had to do BP every appointment. In real world, my assistants/hygienist do at exams and extractions. I personally have only taken one BP since graduating - only after my assidtant failed to get it. But in school, get a electronic cuff - they're generally not as reliable as someone who's really good at getting them manually - but close enough, and will save you a few minutes of time that you'd otherwise be fumbling around with the cuff
