Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“This is an excellent and well-written book aimed at dental nurses studying for a qualification in oral health education . . . This is a well thought out and clearly written publication, where the authors’ knowledge and experiences are clearly conveyed to the reader. Although it is aimed at dental nurses, I believe this book will be an ideal revision aid for dentists, dental students, dental hygienists and therapists in their pursuit of oral health education and promotion.”  (British Dental Journal, 27 June 2014)
