Overview

Providing a solid foundation for the dental field, Kindle/Dofka's DENTAL TERMINOLOGY, 4th Edition, is a quick reference guide that breaks down complicated dental word parts so you can easily learn their meanings. Its innovative word-building approach helps dental assistants understand and remember terminology. Instead of a strict dictionary of dental terms, it serves as a word bank with pronunciation guides and definitions applied to specific practice areas. Chapters are organized by specialty area, so you can quickly find the information you need. The new edition has been thoroughly updated with current visuals, pictures and diagrams. Whether utilized in the classroom or on the job, DENTAL TERMINOLOGY is a valuable reference you can use for years to come.
