5.0 out of 5 stars Get This Book August 27, 2008
Format:Spiral-bound
This spiral-bound text contains some of the most often-used dental instruments, brilliantly illustrated and explained clearly. It's an effective tool in understanding their uses and design. Since there is such a dizzying array of instruments, a guide like this is invaluable.

If you are new to the business of dentistry, a student of dental assisting or even a dental office this book is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dental Insturments February 15, 2012
Format:Spiral-bound
I am a DATS instructor. This is an excellent book for my students. I have had the other editions of the book. This edition has nicer photos and seems to be more well rounded as far as going through the procedures.

I was happy to get this book because I would not have know about the evolve website otherwise. I am happy they finally have a link with the instrument book. It is good my students have all of the study materials to help them out long before they get to the office.

I believe this and the website will afford them the opportunity to excel in the dental office.

Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
I teach Dental instruments and this is one of my recommended books to my students. Great book easy to understand and the picture aids are perfect,however I updated and I must admit the last edition was really a pocket size as I find this edition big and bulky defeating the statement 'pocket'.
