Summary

Comprehensive coverage of the theoretical principles and practical skills needed to perform radiographic exams competently and safely
This clear, up-to-date, reader-friendly text tightly links oral radiology principles with modern practice. It presents all of the necessary information for introductory courses in dental radiography, prepares students for board and licensing examinations, and offers real-world resources for clinical practice and patient management. The book’s nine sections take readers from radiation basics and the fundamentals of dental radiographic techniques, to management of special needs and an introduction to alternate imaging modalities. The Tenth Edition of Essentials of Dental Radiography for Dental Assistants and Hygienists retains core fundamentals presented in earlier editions that focus on an in-depth study of key principles, while expanding and incorporating new concepts that reflect the body of knowledge and evidence-based practice advances that influence the prescription, delivery, and evaluation of radiographic examinations.
