Quiz yourself on how to prepare for and integrate four-handed dentistry techniques when assisting with patient procedures. Check your knowledge of the proper materials and instruments to use when preparing the armamentarium and setting up trays for various intraoral procedures.

With more than 200 questions that mirror the DANB General Chairside Assisting (GC) exam outline, you’ll further your understanding of the concepts covered on the exam and improve your test-taking strategies.
