5. Internet Sites for Information Gathering.A list of Internet sites ineach module encourages students to develop skills in onlineinformation gathering. With the rapid explosion of knowledge inthe dental and medical sciences, a student can no longer expect tolearn everything that he or she needs to know, now and forever,in a few years of professional training.

6. English-to-Spanish Phrase Lists. As the Spanish-speakingpopulation increases, clinicians encounter growing numbers ofSpanish-speaking patients in dental clinics and offices. Teachingstudents to pronounce and speak Spanish is well beyond thescope of this book. For those times when a trained translator isnot available, however, the modules include English-to-Spanishphrase lists with phrases pertinent to the assessment process. Touse these phrase lists, the student clinician simply points to aspecific phrase in the list to facilitate communication with aSpanish-speaking patient.
