Inspection and palpation of the head

 The first part of head, ears, eyes, nose, and throat (HEENT) that you will assess is the head. You inspect for general shape and size, symmetry, expression, and abnormal features. Palpate the temporomandibular joint as the client opens and closes their mouth while feeling for popping and tenderness.
