Editorial Reviews

Ihab Hanna
This updated edition (last edition 1995) offers the most recent research studies, clinical applications, and guidelines for oral disease prevention. There is broad coverage of oral health promotion among all populations, including early childhood, schools, geriatric, compromised patients, and hospital settings. The editors' objectives, which are met in the book, are to provide oral health providers the basic knowledge about the biology, pathophysiology, methods of prevention, and better understanding of the management of the geriatric population, compromised patients, and patients in a hospital setting. This book is written for students, residents, and all practitioners, with no duplication or omission of material. The large number of contributors from international teaching institutions reflects the rich contribution from throughout the world and represents credible authorities in the field. This book covers the importance and methods of application of primary preventive dentistry with emphasis on nutrition, risk factors assessment, and patient motivation not only for patients in dental offices or schools, but also in nursing homes, hospitals, and for those who are compromised. A short epilogue on Ethics of Prevention has been added to this edition. These areas are covered in a user friendly format with objectives, introduction, and a summary with each chapter. This book offers basic knowledge for students about the special care population as well management issues for post-graduate residents and an update of changes in primary preventive dentistry for specialists.

    Do not recommend

    Seller said the book was in "good" condition, however when I recieved the book it had extensive highlighting and writing inside, and the front cover had a huge sticker on it that said "SAVE ON USED BOOKS" (How embarassing!) I tried to peel off the sticker, and when I did, a part of the cover was cut out and a sticker was stuck on the other side as well to cover it up. I have ordered a numerous amount of books for classes online and have never had any other complaints with other sellers. Book should have been listed as "acceptable."
