Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Considering the fact that this is the first book on peri-implant maintenance written for the dental hygienist, it may serve as a first step towards developing protocols for daily practice.” (International Journal of Dental Hygiene, 21 May 2014)

“With the increasing prevalence of dental implants, not only would I recommend this book to its intended audience of dental hygienists, but feel it is a good read for all dental professionals and undergraduates who will inevitably come across dental implants at some stage of their career.” (British Dental Journal, 7 February 2014)
