Overview

Now the leading dental hygiene text is even better in a new Eighth Edition!

Like its predecessors, the Eighth Edition features concise organization, outline format, and a clear writing style that's just right for practitioners, educators, and students. You'll find current updates on the dental hygiene process of care: patient assessment, formulation of dental hygiene diagnoses and treatment plans, implementation, evaluation, and follow-up.

NEW and revised chapters give you a more complete view of current issues in quality Dental Hygiene care:

  • "Health Promotion and Disease Prevention," including new sections on xerostomia and halitosis

  • "The Patient Who Uses Tobacco," with insights on the Dental Hygienist's role in educating patients on the effects of tobacco on oral health, and counseling on tobacco use cessation

  • "Anxiety and Pain Control," including basic products, procedures, and indications for nitrous-oxide/oxygen sedation, and local anesthesia

  • Coverage of slow-release substances (tetracycline fiber, chlorhexidine chip, and doxycycline gel) to treat disease pockets

  • Bone marrow transplant information, with updated material on chemotherapy and radiation patients

  • A new set of sign-language drawings to help you improve communication and compliance with your hearing-impaired patients.

In addition, you'll get a wealth of NEW improvements that make the Eighth Edition a must have:

  • Outlines at the beginning of each chapter to help you establish learning objectives
  • Illustrations and tables throughout, highlighted with color
  • Contributions from top Dental Hygieneeducators and practitioners from around the world
  • Current, comprehensive references geared to evidence-based practice
  • More tables added to summarize important information.

It's served as the cornerstone of the Dental Hygienist's library through seven prior editions-and the Eighth Edition of Clinical Practice of the Dental Hygienist is the best yet!
