Synopsis:
The most comprehensive, all-encompassing dental hygiene text to date, this excellent tool helps readers not only master clinical skills, but also the theory behind the dental hygiene care process. It guides the reader through the dental hygiene care process based on the human needs model, beginning with foundational information, addressing all aspects of client care - including individuals with special needs - and concluding with leadership and management roles of a dental hygienist. Unique step-by-step descriptions of procedures with illustrations and rationales not only teach competent skill performance, but also the theory behind the dental hygiene process. The 2nd edition features a full-color design with color photos and illustrations, a more user-friendly format with extensive bullet lists, boxes, and comprehensive tables, and new pedagogical features to reinforce learning.
