Summary

This balanced text with a straight forward, clear link between theory and practice provides in depth, comprehensive information that is appropriate for an introductory course without overwhelming the student with unessential details. It prepares students for the board and licensing examinations and at the same time gives them the practical knowledge they need with case studies, procedure boxes and suggested lab activities that prepare students to apply theory to clinical practice and patient management. True to its title, this book speaks to both the dental assisting and dental hygiene student.

Features

  • Procedure Boxes may be utilized as ready made laboratory activities. They highlight and simplify critical steps of radiographic procedures to prepare students for laboratory application of text book theory. As a result, less in class time is required for instructors to explain and demonstrate laboratory activities.
  • Practice Points - call students attention to areas where the information learned will most likely be applied to real life situations; there real life application provides the reader with a "mental break" from the theory being presented.
  • Case Studies- presented in each chapter have questions that provoke decision -making based on concepts presented in the chapter. These meaningful cases relate directly to radiography applications and challenge the students to assimilate knowledge learned in the reading and apply it to real life situations, basing decision making on correct concepts.
  • Suggested Activities - included for possible lab exercises, research outside of class time, essay writing and investigation using the internet.
