Spanish Terminology for the Dental Team

Key Features


  • A companion, audio CD-ROM is included and provides the English to Spanish translation of every phrase in the book.
  • Content covers everything from salutations to case histories and follow up care — in the style dentists and assistants interact with patients.
  • The highly portable, pocket guide format is easy to reference when taking a history or working with a patient.
  • Terminology included in this reference covers the gamut of topics that are essential to effective communication in the dental office — related to both administration and procedures.
  • Clinical exchanges covered in the book include those that deal with the hygiene appointment, the dentist's preventive checkup, taking x-rays, and treatment planning.
  • More specific phrases are found on the specialty dental visits — including periodontics, endodontics, orthodontics, prosthodontics, and cosmetic dentistry — as well as front office exchanges between a patient and the business assistant.
  • Content covers speaking to pediatric patients and includes more simplistic language.
  • Informal expressions provide more casual phrases to use with the patient.
  • A comprehensive glossary offers an English to Spanish list of common words and phrases divided by categories — such as days of the week, interrogative questions, common dental terms, and other terms in common use that are not necessarily related to dentistry.
  • Each English phrase appears in boldface type, and beneath the English phrase is the same phrase in Spanish, not in boldface.
  • Several versions of equivalent expressions are provided to ensure that individuals with different styles of communication will be able to select the expressions that they like best.
