Dental Assisting Guide

The LBCC Library is open again! View our hours.

Welcome! Below are a few resources related to dental topics and dental assisting to get you started with research. If you have questions, or would like more in-depth assistance, including help with APA citations, feel free to visit us in the library.


Here is a list of many of the print books in our collection related to dental topics. Note that not all our print books related to dentistry are on the same spot on the shelf. Because we organize our books by Library of Congress call number, books are arranged by main subject. Sometimes books have multiple main subjects, and so may be shelved with other topics. For example, most of our dental anatomy books are shelved with other anatomy and physiology books.


Ebooks related specifically to dental assisting. Limited to the last 8 years.
