This laboratory manual challenges students to link theory with clinical practice. Designed to complement Essentials of Dental Radiography for Dental Assistants and Hygienists, 10th Edition, Exercises in Oral Radiography Techniques: A Laboratory Manual serves as a workbook to guide a student in the practice of radiographic techniques with ready-made exercises, which include mounting diagrams to attach finished radiographs and pages that allow a student to turn in assignments for instructor evaluation. Each of the student-centered activities requires minimal preparation by an instructor, and explicit directions guide independent, self-paced practice.

A thorough revision, in combination with a reorganization of topic presentation, reflects the educational recommendations of dental hygiene and dental assisting curriculum guidelines.
