This text focuses on motivational interviewing as the system of teaching patients. The description of educational methods is sound and easy to follow. A dental hygienist or dentist learning this system can pick one or two techniques and use them in practice, them develop a few more as concepts are mastered. This is a system that can be put into practice by a typical clinician whose aims include helping patients develop self-efficacy and responsibility for their health. The text could be improved by including additional teaching methods and identifying when different methods should be considered.
