The flip-book, flashcard-style method helps readers memorize and quickly identify instruments at a glance, with a photograph or illustration of the instrument on the top page, and a full description of the instrument on the bottom page - including its name, function, and key characteristics. The picture of each instrument makes an ideal flashcard that readers can use to quiz themselves or others. At the end of some chapters, a photograph provides an example of a tray set-up that incorporates many of the instruments used in that chapter. The perfect study tool! Each instrument is featured on two pages with a picture of the instrument on one page and the instrument's name, functions, and characteristics on the other. Each chapter features high-quality photos or line drawings of instruments specific to that chapter to make it easy for students to quickly recognize and identify the instrument. The flashcard format helps students to learn and retain information. Handy pocket size makes it convenient to carry and use at any time. Spiral binding allows the book to lay flat or fold over to make visible just the instrument, just its description, or both. Includes chapters that focus specifically on instruments used in dental specialties such as endodontics, orthodontics, periodontics, and oral surgery. Descriptions of instruments use the same three categories: 1) Name, 2) Function, and 3) Characteristics. Many chapters feature a tray set-up at the end, showing how instruments are typically laid out for a specific procedure. The Evolve website features instructor materials such as teaching tips, an image collection, a test bank, and web links. An all-new, full-color design makes this text more visually appealing. All-new color photos allow students to see exactly how instruments/equipment appear in the dental practice. All-new line art helps students to zero in on specific elements/areas of the instrument. For many instruments, close-ups of the working ends are shown to help students distinguish between similar-looking instruments. A new chapter on instrument sterilization features instruments and equipment used in the practice of infection control. More hygiene instruments have been added to the hygiene chapter, increasing the book's appeal to hygiene students and practicing hygienists.

In the book, you’ll review with more than 1,250 Component A practice questions — with each answer including a rationale for both correct and incorrect answer options. Online, you can review the same questions plus an additional 420 case-based items related to Component B in 1) practice mode or 2) timed, exam-simulation mode with randomized tests that match the number and distribution of questions on the NBDHE.

More than 1,680 multiple-choice questions provide comprehensive practice spanning the entire NBDHE, with 1,250+ items relating to Component A — more than six times the number of questions on the actual exam! — and 420 case-based questions related to Component B. Rationales accompany each question, fully explaining why each answer choice is either correct or incorrect and thus serving as secondary content review. Distribution of questions matches each category on the NBDHE test specifications, ensuring that you have adequate practice for each content area. An Evolve companion website includes all 1,250+ questions from the book plus additional case studies with color images and accompanying questions, available either in practice mode with instant feedback or in exam-simulation format with results and feedback provided at the end of the exam. A test creator and timer on Evolve generates NBDHE-style tests that mimic the number and distribution of questions on the NBDHE and also provides realistic practice with time management during the exam. 16 detailed case studies on Evolve, each of which includes a patient medical/dental history, completed periodontal chart, oral radiographs, clinical photographs, and 20-35 multiple-choice questions for patients in the five main categories covered on the NBDHE (adult periodontitis, pediatric, geriatric, special needs, and medically compromised). References to text sources make it easy to review or find more information on specific topics.
