DEN126 Dental Hygiene II: Your Assignment


Identify Keywords

Databases have controlled vocabularies and in order to find scholarly articles on your topic, you need to use the same vocabulary as the database.  Look for a link to thesaurus, subject headings, etc.

Here are some keywords and phrases you could use:

  • dental AND diabetes (or other special need)
  • dental AND "special needs"
  • dental AND "medically compromised"

Reminder:  Use quotes when searching phrases (except in PubMed).
