This Handbook for Dental Nurses is written by three experienced dental nurses who understand how difficult it is to retain all the knowledge learnt during training, while keeping up-to-date with developments in dentistry. This book provides a practical, quick reference handbook, which is easy to understand and helps dental nurses to maintain high standards in clinical practice. This is not a textbook containing the theory underpinning dental nursing; the focus is on checklists, helpful hints and practical information. Photographs and diagrams help to show good practice in all aspects of dental nursing. The book is aimed principally at dental nurses in practice, especially those who are newly qualified, returning to work, or those who will be 'grandparented' in terms of registration. Student dental nurses will find this a valuable guide to the clinical environment. In all, an excellent ready reference for every dental surgery.
