Heckman, Karen; Noirfalise, Pat
The first component of this three-part package is a student manual designed to be used independently in secondary health occupations programs or on-the-job training programs for dental assistants. The manual contains seven units that cover the following topics: introduction to dentistry; basic office procedures; infection control and occupational safety; basic anatomy of the oral cavity; operative equipment; dental radiology; and basic laboratory procedures. Units are organized in lessons, which contain lesson objectives, key terms, content information, illustrations, and activity sheets. Each unit has a written evaluation to test students' knowledge and skill sheets that provide a record for mastery of the steps of procedure for each skill. A unit checklist located at the end of each unit provides a method for keeping track of activity sheets, clinical and laboratory activity sheets, skill sheets, and written unit evaluations. The second package component, the instructor key, provides answers to the activity sheets and unit evaluations. The third package component is a one-page student competency record. Contains 28 references and a glossary of 73 terms. (KC)
