technology such as digital radiography in practice; trends in polishing practices; the oralsystemic
link and its connection to overall wellness; the use of teledentistry to care for

Career Satisfaction. Volume III concludes with the importance of lifelong learning;
balancing work and personal life; and dental hygiene and career satisfaction focuses on
