Birthday CandlesThey are all terms found on the Glossary of Dental Clinical and Administrative Terms. There are many terms used daily by dentists and their teams in the course of delivering care to patients, maintaining patient records and preparing claims. New dentists and new team members may not be as familiar with some terms. From abscess to zygomatic bone, the Glossary has the definitions to get everyone up to speed and on the same page.

    When working in any type of office it is always good to have references to go to. Especially in the dentist field. The glossary can help even those that are just starting out in the industry. You want everyone in your office to feel comfortable when speaking or listening to other colleagues.

    This is a good investment for the office. I heard a story once about a new staff member using a term and it ended up being the word for the month. I guess you had to be there.
