Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Radiography and Radiology for Dental Nurses by Eric Whaites is an excellent resource for Dental Nurses undertaking the post qualification in Dental Radiography and also for other professions complementary to dentistry.

Dental Update, January / February 2006

Great informative book giving all the basics of radiation protection, technique and a helpful section on how to improve image quality with selection of poorly positioned radiographs. I recommend this title for the dental room in X-ray departments and/or dental nurses/students.

Amazon

"Given the vast range of topics covered, I feelthis book is aimed more towards those wishing to undertake a radiology qualification rather than all members of the dental team, although it may prove a useful tool in explaining the purpose and safety aspects to dental nurses/ students. Overall Radiography and Radiology for Dental Care Professionals is a fantastic resource and I would highly recommend this book to any DCPs taking a radiology course and to dental students and general dental practitioners alike looking to refresh their knowledge or learn more about dental imaging."
