One in a series of instructional videos in dental assisting. These videos were produced by the University of Florida College of Dentistry Department of Community Dentistry and Behavioral Sciences with grant funding from the University of Florida College of Medicine. Dr. John Bidwell is a courtesy faculty member at the UF College of Dentistry, a staff dentist at the Leon County Department of Health and a faculty member of the Tallahassee Community College where he teaches dental assisting. We appreciate the support of Dr. Bidwell and all of the organizations involved in creating these materials.
