From the Inside Flap: PREFACE
The twenty-first century mandates a change in the practice and understanding of dental public health principles. Dental hygienists increasingly are becoming important fixtures in dental public health. In fact, the changes in supervisory status affecting many states will have an unprecedented effect on the practice of dental public health. Moreover, dental hygiene's ability to react proactively to these changes can have a tremendous effect on dental public health within the United States. Additionally, other countries may benefit from dental hygiene's growth within the United States, which was the founder of contemporary dental hygiene and is presently the world leader of this evolving profession. The dental hygiene practitioners, currently dental hygiene students, who will be practicing in this new century need information on how to effectively position and practice dental hygiene in the dental public health setting.
Dental Public Health: Contemporary Practice for the Dental Hygienist will introduce the student to the historical development of the profession of dental hygiene, focusing on its inception as a true public health profession. The prevention modalities encompassing public health dental hygiene will be discussed, including fluoridation, dental sealants, fluoride mouthrinse programs, education, and other dental health interventions.
The current status of denial public health delivery in the United States and abroad will be discussed, with emphasis on the governmental structures affecting dental hygiene care delivery. The dental hygiene profession's collaboration with a variety of health care professionals outside of the private dental practice delivery system is also a focus of the text.
