Coloring is being used in formal therapeutic settings such as eye-hand coordination development and to help heal victims of trauma. Studies also show that coloring can reduce stress.

Regardless of your needs, there is so much to be gained by spending some time coloring. Choosing your colors and the gentle, repetitive motion of your hand as you bring color to paper helps quiet your mind - bringing your usual rapid-fire thoughts down to a much slower pace. So take a break from your studies and find your creative center! 

The diagrams have numbered leader lines with the labels given in a table below each diagram so that students can mask these out for purposes of self-testing. Students report that they find this can be an effective supplementary method for learning anatomy.

Featuring an array of coloring and labeling activities, the DACB provides an easy, fun, and effective way to memorize the structures of the head and neck region as well as the basic body systems affecting dentistry. Each chapter includes several images that you are asked to color and connect with corresponding labels. This edition adds MORE illustrations and NEW review questions with references to specific chapters in core textbooks where more in-depth explanations can be found.

Developed by MJ Fehrenbach, a nationally renowned authority in dental professional education, this coloring book makes it easier to identify anatomic landmarks and understand the complex interrelationships involved in dental anatomy and physiology. Access to online student resources on the Evolve companion website for Illustrated Anatomy of the Head and Neck, 5th Edition, including use of the Body Spectrum electronic anatomy coloring book (from Elsevier site).

Various Edition Reviews

Excellent resource! This book is the perfect addition to any Dental Anatomy course textbook. Great pictures, easy to understand

Perfect addition to my dental hygiene books!!!, I am in my first semester of dental hygiene school and am so excited to have found this book!!! The curriculum is extremely demanding and there is so much information to learn in the beginning. This book has helped me in my detailed head/neck anatomy course and is a great refresher on other body systems. A definite must for the board exam!!!

I LOVE the dental anatomy coloring book you designed!! I wish I had something like this when I was in DH school. The pictures and the quality of the pages is fantastic.  It is a great and relaxing way for students to learn the anatomy!

Excellent book to practise dental anatomy. The book is so detailed. You can learn main features or small details, depending on your preference, Also each chapter has a set of questions to revise and learn anatomic features. Definitely recommend!

And now the NY Times weighs in on Coloring Books for Adults Seeking Playtime; sounds good!
