More About This Textbook


This book is a comprehensive, yet user-friendly, and clinically focused text on materials for dental hygiene that logically presents the theoretical aspects of materials while also making the clinical application to best prepare students to handle materials. The text's unique strength is its outline approach to presenting materials information.  This outline approach, consistent with the format of Wilkins, is preferred by the market because it is clear, to the point, and concise. 
Clinical Aspects of Dental Materials also incorporates useful chapter features, but no fluff, case studies, and skills checklists that can be used in the laboratory portion of the course.

Written by a dental hygiene educator and biomaterials scientist, the fully updated Second Edition of this unique text examines the clinical aspects of dental materials and materials science--including the composition of dental materials and their proper use and handling in laboratory and clinical applications. The clearly organized text is presented in outline format with numerous illustrations, radiographs, and procedural techniques. For this edition, board review questions have been added to the end of each chapter to facilitate self-paced learning. Readers will also find new learning activities, more definitions for key terms, and new laboratory and clinical evaluation competency criteria.
