About this page

This page provides tips for choosing the best resources for your dental assisting research.


Resources for Your Dental Studies

Deciding What You Need

1. Does your assignment require books?  Journal articles? Web sites? 

  • If your syllabus asks you for journal articles, click on the Articles tab, and learn about CINAHL and ProQuest.
  • If your syllabus  asks for books, click on the Books tab, and learn how to find books in the RTC Library Catalog.
  • If your syllabus  asks for web resources, click on Web Sites. These pages list recommended web sites on many medical topics.  

2. If no formats are specified, think about the age of the material you need.

  • If you are researching something that is a established fact, try books (found in the RTC Catalog) or encyclopedias (found in the RTC Catalog, in Gale Encyclopedias or Credo Reference (found on the RTC Library Database page). Examples of established facts include "the structure of teeth" or "teaching patients about dental hygiene."
  • If you are reseaching something new, like "trends in cosmetic dentistry" try journal and newspaper articles (found in CINAHL or ProQuest.)
