Format: Paperback
The text is very useful for the individual who does not have any dental experience, as well as a nice reference for someone trying to explain terminology to a novice. There is a lot of valuable information in the book and on the CD. Everything is presented with clarity. It is a great resource for your own personal dental library.

I have found that with my dental Assisting students, many of them do not
"get" pronunciation. Granted, there are many medical/dental terms which
defy regular rules, but some are a given.

This book, especially, with the CD was a real help to those students as they were
starting out. Great for self-study.

Format: Paperback
Learning the correct definitions and pronunciations of dental terminology is key for anyone studying to work in the dentistry field and Charline Dofka's book, Dental Terminology, is an essential resource for those students.

The book is clear, comprehensive and well organized. Each chapter contains optional exercises that a person could use to test how well he or she is retaining the information found in the chapter. There is also an appendix that breaks down dental terminology to prefixes, suffixes and root words, making it easier for someone to intuitively understand a dental term. Another great feature is the "sounds like" pronunciation tool and the CD that allows students to hear the words and phrases in question being articulated.

Near the end of the book, there are chapters that will help with the business and financial side of the dentistry field, including ones on office communications, appointment control, patient records and filing procedures, business correspondence, dental insurance terms, financial disbursement and banking, inventory control and legal and ethical terms.

If someone you know is entering the field of dentistry, this volume would make a terrific gift. Dental Terminology would also make a thoughtful present for a dental hygienist re-entering the field who is in need of a quick refresher/reference guide.

This book is well put together and was simple to find the terminology that was required for my class. I would recomend this book for dental assisting.

Excellent source for dental terminology. We order this for students going through dental assisting and it couldn't be more valuable.
