Modern Dental Assisting is the ultimate resource for preparing readers to become assistants in the dental office. It provides a solid foundation for the basic and advanced clinical skills readers must master in order to achieve competence, and its user-friendly style clarifies even the most complex concepts and procedures. Plus, the comprehensive, targeted coverage of clinical and administrative topics helps readers prepare for DANB certification. Key procedures are presented in a detailed, step-by-step format with accompanying illustrations, rationales, icons, and tray setups. Expanded functions are clearly indicated throughout the text and procedures. A complete chapter on dental caries discusses methods of prevention and intervention. Information on ergonomics in the dental office explores proper methods of sitting, reaching, stretching, wrist and hand positioning, and the proper chairs for optimum comfort and efficiency for the dental team and patient. Recall questions interspersed throughout the chapters make it easy for readers to test their knowledge in short sections. Key Terms with a pronunciation guide and a complete Glossary highlight and define terms that are important to learning dental assisting. Learning Outcomes outline the key objectives in the upcoming chapter, and Performance Outcomes highlight the skilled competencies that must be mastered in the pre-clinic, laboratory, and classroom settings. Legal and Ethical Implications help readers understand the ramifications of illegal actions and reinforce good, life-long ethical behavior. Eye to the Future sections make readers aware of new advancements in dental treatment and office practices. Patient Education sections present important information that dental assistants need to master to share with patients. Critical Thinking questions encourage readers to process the material they have learned from the chapter and apply it to real-life situations. HIPAA Boxes feature important information on HIPAA regulations and how they affect dental practice. CDC Boxes highlight the latest guidelines for safe dental practice. Two CD-ROMs The Interactive Dental Office and Dental Assisting Video Procedures are bound into the textbook and provide readers with innovative study tools such as interactive radiograph mounting, charting, case studies, review questions, as well as more than 50 video clips that bring key office procedures to life. A CD-ROM icon in the textbook directs readers to additional exercises on the bound-in CD-ROMs. Updated, user-friendly internal design improves readability
