Overview

Ethics, Jurisprudence and Practice Management in Dental Hygiene, 2e is designed to orient dental hygiene students to clinical practice and its many applications in an office setting. Although dentists, dental practices, and dental hygiene can be generalized, each practice will be unique in its daily operations and policies. This book explains how in this new millennium, the art and science of dental hygiene continues to progress and evolve. More states have entered into independent or alternative practice settings for experienced dental hygienists. Supervision laws have been relaxed that allow for increase access to care and help eliminate disparities among diverse and underserved population groups. Strategies are being developed to increase cultural competencies and multidisciplinary collaboration, as well as, to increase the number of minorities in the oral health workfoce. Dental hygienists are utilizing more of their skills as oral health is becoming an important entity of general health. And, dental hygienists are becoming more responsible for the regulation of the their profession, the profession of dental hygiene.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Appropriate for use in ethics and jurisprudence courses, practice management and seminar courses, or as a resource for practicing hygienists, this book reviews common ethical, legal, and administrative situations in the dental workplace, with a focus on technology. After an introduction to moral philosophy and ethical principles, topics including informed consent, decision making, jurisprudence, social issues, and practice management are covered, and career issues are discussed. Some 20 pages of appendices present codes of ethics and lists of agencies. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Preface

The information and examples in this book are designed to orient dental hygiene students to clinical practice and its many applications in an office setting. Although dentists, dental practices, and dental hygiene can be generalized, each practice will be unique in its daily operations and policies.

As you read and participate in the exercises, keep in mind that experiences will be unique. In this new millennium, the art and science of dental hygiene continues to progress and evolve. More states have entered into independent or alternative practice settings for experienced dental hygienists.

Upon becoming a registered or licensed dental hygienist, you are encouraged to actively participate in furthering the development of patient education and dental hygiene research as well as your own education. Reach out to communities that are not able to access dental care in a traditional setting and continually stay abreast of the link between periodontal disease and total body health, as patients see the dental hygienist as the oral health care specialist. The knowledge and relationships that build from networking with other professionals will be invaluable.

We hope that you find personal and professional satisfaction in your dental hygiene career and as a member of the dental hygiene profession.
