Dental Instruments : A Pocket Guide (Paperback) (Linda R. Bartolomucci Boyd)
about this item
Featuring over 300 instruments, this innovative resource is designed to help students master dental instrument identification, as well as assist in taking instrument inventory in the dental office. The flip-book, flashcard-style method helps readers memorize and quickly identify instruments at a glance, with a photograph or illustration of the instrument on the top page, and a full description of the instrument on the bottom page - including its name, function, and key characteristics. The picture of each instrument makes an ideal flashcard that readers can use to quiz themselves or others. At the end of some chapters, a photograph provides an example of a tray set-up that incorporates many of the instruments used in that chapter.
- The perfect study tool! Each instrument is featured on two pages with a picture of the instrument on one page and the instrument's name, functions, and characteristics on the other.
- Each chapter features high-quality photos or line drawings of instruments specific to that chapter to make it easy for students to quickly recognize and identify the instrument.
- The flashcard format helps students to learn and retain information.
