The Dental X-ray Tubehead
By Joan Rohrer
Learners examine the components of the x-ray tubehead, a sealed, heavy metal housing that contains the x-ray tube that produces dental x-rays. This object is designed to help students understand the functions and safety features of the tubehead.
In this interactive learning activity, learners explore factors that contribute to the aging process. Learners calculate their age based on biological, psychological, and social experiences. Further reflection allows the learner to consider options and assess issues that impact the aging process.
