Overview

Emphasizing evidence-based research and clinical competencies, Dental Hygiene: Theory and Practice, 4th Edition, provides easy-to-understand coverage of the dental hygienist’s roles and responsibilities in today’s practice. It offers a clear approach to science and theory, a step-by-step guide to core dental hygiene procedures, and realistic scenarios to help you develop skills in decision-making. New chapters and content focus on evidence-based practice, palliative care, professional issues, and the electronic health record. Written by Michele Leonardi Darby, Margaret M. Walsh, and a veritable Who’s Who of expert contributors, Dental Hygiene follows the Human Needs Conceptual Model with a focus on client-centered care that takes the entire person into consideration.


• UNIQUE!
Human Needs Conceptual Model framework follows Maslow’s human needs theory, helping hygienists treat the whole patient - not just specific diseases.
Comprehensive coverage addresses the need-to-know issues in dental hygiene - from the rationale behind the need for dental hygiene care through assessment, diagnosis, care planning, implementation, pain and anxiety control, the care of individuals with special needs, and practice management.
Step-by-step procedure boxes list the equipment required and the steps involved in performing key procedures. Rationales for the steps are provided in printable PDFs online.
Critical Thinking exercises and Scenario boxes encourage application and problem solving, and help prepare students for the case-based portion of the NBDHE.
Client Education boxes list teaching points that the dental hygienist may use to educate clients on at-home daily oral health care.
High-quality and robust art program includes full-color illustrations and clinical photographs as well as radiographs to show anatomy, complex clinical procedures, and modern equipment.
Legal, Ethical, and Safety Issues boxes address issues related to risk prevention and management.
Expert authors Michele Darby and Margaret Walsh lead a team of international contributors consisting of leading dental hygiene instructors, researchers, and practitioners.


• NEW chapters

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael E. Gewerth, RDH (University of Chicago Medical Center)
Description: This is the second edition of a book that describes the evidence-based research and practical applications in all aspects of dental hygiene. The first edition was published in 1995.
Purpose: The book is used as a guide in decision making and practical application in private practice as well as the clinic and classroom. The authors have met and exceeded their objectives.
Audience: The book is written for students as well as practitioners of dental hygiene. The authors have done a superior job of writing the book and are a creditable source of information.
Features: The graphic illustrations as well as the theory give the student an almost hands-on approach to clinical practice. The easy access and the up-to-date information are strong points in this book. I was impressed with the chapter on local anesthetic — excellent!
Assessment: This book is much needed as the information and laws have changed since 1995. Overall, this is an excellent teaching reference as well as a textbook.
From the Publisher
"Each chapter is well planned, very readable, beautifully and appropriately illustrated with excellent colour photographs and diagrams... I would recommend this as a valuable book for all members of the dental team to have on their bookshelf. It is clearly written and very informative, invaluable for students and a very useful reference book for those dental professionals, like me, whose student days are a distant memory.With continuing professional development high on the agenda these days, this publication is certainly a useful tool for refreshing and updating one’s knowledge." Team in Practice, July 2010
