Overview

Completely updated in a new edition, this book features diverse case-based scenarios designed to help dental hygienists sharpen their critical decision- making skills and application of basic dental hygiene knowledge and skills--from various dental hygiene disciplines--to client care. It will also help those preparing for the national, regional and state examinations which have a client-care focus. Each case contains a medical history, dental history, vital signs (including blood pressure, pulse and respiratory rates), radiographs, dental and periodontal charting, intraoral photographs, and photographs of study models, where applicable. Each case lists "deficits" that prompt decision-making opportunities regarding client care and treatment recommendations that promote oral health and prevent oral diseases. For Dental Hygienists and those preparing for the Dental Hygiene National Board Examination.
