Review:

REVIEW OF PREVIOUS EDITION:

"The standard for dental hygiene professional care. When the textbook came out, it was considered quite advanced in the concepts concerning dental hygiene diagnosis, treatment plans, and care. Now that these concepts are finally being considered mainstream, the textbook still delivers the information needed for not only basic dental hygiene care, but restorative and pain control care. I hope that the next edition covers more in the area of ultrasonics and the latest in periodontal disease technology in diagnosis and care. Knowing the level of excellence in this textbook, I am sure it will be included."
-- Margaret J. Fehrenbach, RDH, MS, Educational Consultant, Seattle, WA (Amazon.com reviewer)
