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.
Learners read definitions of terms related to legal, insurance, and advocacy issues regarding the elderly. At the end of the activity, learners test their knowledge in three matching exercises. Some of the programs and groups discussed are Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, long-term care insurance, OBRA, SSI, and CWAG.
