introductory and professional learning. For example, the Atlas
is successfully being used in the introductory pediatric dentistry course
at the University of Washington, as well as in the pediatric dental
and pediatric medical residency programs, where it is especially useful
as residents are given broad responsibility for treatment of children
and adolescents. Much of the content is also appropriate for dental
assisting and dental hygiene programs and other universities are successfully
using it in their predoc programs.

large images with page titles as the only text. The images include color
clinical photographs and radiographs. It is designed for care providers
to explain various conditions and treatment approaches to parents and
children. These images can be shown to parents and children to demonstrate
concepts more effectively.
