This mobile application is specifically designed for dental, dental assistant and dental hygienist students. It was conceived with learners in mind, who want to self-evaluate and review their knowledge of dental anesthesia in preparation for lab exercises, quizzes or exams.


Here's what University of Michigan Students said about the SecondLookTM concept:

"The Second Look (files) have been a godsend. They do a great job of both teaching and quizzing you on the relevant material. Once I complete the Second Look, I know I'm ready to quiz."

"The Second Look was a fantastic review for the exam, for both structure and function. I actually went over the Second Look (files) twice - once immediately after doing the lecture and lab to help reinforce what I learned, and then again before the exam as a review."

"The Second Look files are phenomenal and were an excellent way to test my knowledge after I had studied a bit."
