Over the past half-century, clinical practitioners, educators and researchers have argued for the benefits of using video and television in dental education. Everything within the tooth is tiny and it is hard to provide light in the inner structures of the teeth. This does not only pose challenges to the practising dentist, but also to the student of dentistry. This chapter investigates how a combination of video and microscopes is used for instructional purposes. In the first part, the production of the instructional video is analysed. The second part investigates how the video is interpreted and explicated by the teacher.
