Adolescent Template Report

dentistry case study and need the explanation and answer to help me learn.

Submit a 4 page (approx.) template on the adolescent patient. The document attached should be downloaded and saved (see below) to your computer. Fill in all appropriate sections and include 2 references or sources for your information. Bullet points preferred.

The file name should be created like this: DH 113-B, JSmith-adol (your report needs your first initial and last name embedded in the name of the file). Confirm the type of document you submit is accessible on Canvas (Word or PDF) Google docs and Pages will not open within the rubric area.
The Wilkins text has excellent general information about each patient type however the template requires details about each heading area. Students should plan on 4-5 sentences per heading. Students will include at least two peer-reviewed references; typically these are journals and not websites (in addition to your required texts) in APA format, for this assignment.
If a student submits a report after the deadline, this will result in a loss of 10% off the final score for each day it is late OR if they turn in the report after 5 days, the student will receive a “0” for the report.
