The Dental Deck is a flash card system for dental students.

This Dental Deck for the NDB exam appeared at the Texas Medical Center Library’s book drop. Staff on the circulation desk called the McGovern Historical Center and offered us the deck. We snapped it up.
It is a curious set of flashcard. In my mind flash cards are something I used in elementary school to study phonics or simple math. Enlarge the photo and you can see that these flashcards require serious study. My hat is off to every dental student who has earned advanced degrees in dentistry.
