Overview

The purpose of this course is to aid you in the transfer of instruments in the practice of efficient four‑handed dentistry. The efficient exchange of instruments between the operator and the dental assistant is fundamental to the facilitation of an efficient and stress‑free dental practice. This requires a commitment on the part of the members of the operating team to specific work practices before and during a dental procedure. This course examines various instrument transfers and rationale for each. In addition to the descriptions and figures, the course contains a video presentation of the proper transfer techniques in a clinical setting.
