To facilitate instruction and learning the text is broken down into six major areas - Microbiology and Disease Prevention Specific to Dentistry; National Guidelines, Recommendations and Regulations; Infection Control Techniques; Environmental Health and Safety; and Office Communications Regarding Infection Control - according to their relevance to the dental assistant's role in infectious disease prevention. Numerous hands-on procedures and assessment questions are designed to help students track their comprehension and retention of presented material.
