Behavioral Dentistry / Edition 1by David I. Mostofsky
Pub. Date: 01/30/2006
Behavioral Dentistry surveys the vast and absorbing topic of the role of behavioral science in the study and clinical practice of dentistry. An understanding of social sciences has long been a central part of dental education, and essential for developing a clinician’s appreciation of human behavior as it affects efficient dental treatment. This book gathers together contributions from leading experts in each of the major subspecialties of behavioral dentistry. Its aim is not merely to provide the student and clinician with a comprehensive review of the impressive literature or discussion of the theoretical background to the subject, but also with a practical guide to adapting the latest techniques and protocols and applying them to day-to-day clinical practice.
Behavioral Dentistry deals first with biobehavioral processes, including the psychobiology of inflammation and pain, oral health and quality of life, saliva health, and hypnosis in dentistry. The book goes on to examine anxiety, fear, and pain, and then techniques for designing and managing behavior change. It concludes with a section on professional practice, including serving special needs populations, interpersonal communication in dental education, and community health promotion.
