G S:

Oh my god I’m in dental assisting and now getting to the x ray topic and this helped sooo much and gave me a much better idea on how to take a proper X-ray. Thank you!

Elizabeth Schiada:

She should be going over how to open the contacts of the teeth. That’s something I have trouble with. Another thing she should go over is landmarks and what parts of the patient’s head and face to use as a guide when taking xrays.

Scott:

My x-rays dramatically improved the very next day after watching this! I can’t thank you enough for this video!!

abi:

I didn’t go to school for dental assisting and so far I’m doing good but getting a good PA is hard!🙃

jasonyu72:

What happens if the xray turns out to be blurry? What causes the xray image to be blurry? if the patient bites down hard on the equipment , will there have any affect to the xray outcome?

nancy ibarra:

thank god I found this video is helping me as a review tomorrow I have my first dental assisting interview and they asked me to shadow I dont’ know what to expect

xilinor:

my dentist never asked me to put the protective gear on. But he protected himself by leaving me alone in the room without any instructions

DNH Academic:

I have a question for Miss Medina – what typodont setup are you using. I work for a community college and teach dental hygiene radiography. I like your setup better than the one we have. Can you tell me about this setup. We have Dexter model that are ancient and broken. Thank you.

Nat:

Was really helpful, but my office doesn’t use the XCPs and as a new student I’m really struggling 🤦🏽‍♀️😕
