1. The Basic Examination and Anesthetic Instruments

1-1. GENERAL

In the age of four handed, sit-down dentistry, a well-trained assistant is an integral part of dental procedures. Part of your responsibility will be to anticipate the dentist
's next move and have the instruments ready when he needs them. To do this, you must have a thorough knowledge of the procedures the dentist
 will follow and of the appropriate instruments used in each of these procedures. Your knowledge, combined with practice, will add to the efficiency of the dentist
 and the comfort of the patient. An efficient assistant, it has been shown, will enable the doctor-assistant team to handle fifty percent more patients.
