Student Workbook for Essentials of Dental Assisting, 6th Edition
This dynamic workbook helps students understand, practice, and apply the material found in their Essentials of Dental Assisting, 6th Edition main text. Within the workbook are three main sections: practice questions and exercises, competency sheets that outline the steps necessary to master each procedure in the main text, and removable flashcards that focus on key information for on-the-go study. New chapter questions and exercises for the online Interactive Dental Office case-based program provide enhanced practice and application. All workbook content is organized by chapter to make it easy for students to move back and forth from the main text and easily assimilate and apply content.
