Dental Auxiliary Occupations. Interim Report.
Kingston, Richard D.
As part of a dental auxiliaries project, a Dental Auxiliary National Technical Advisory Committee was established, and its major undertaking was to assist in the development of a functional inventory for each of the three dental auxiliary occupations (dental assisting, dental hygiene, and dental laboratory technology). The analysis consisted of subdividing the task list into five categories and developing a survey instrument to answer questions about each task function. Currently, 900 survey instruments have been distributed nationally, and the results will be summarized in a later report. The instructional format which allows for individualized instruction, consists of 18 units intended to encompass skills and concepts required for performance in each dental auxiliary functional area. Core and sub-core curriculum possibilities are being selected. Additional background material is available as ED 037 570 (RIE July 1970), and other allied health professionals projects are VT 011 425-VT 011 431 in this issue. (SB)
