The years that have elapsed since publication of the eighth edition of this book have witnessed some of the most major transitions in the history of dental nursing. Many of these developments are heralded by the modernisation and expansion of the dental care professions, while others are due to changes in techniques and materials. The ninth edition of the book has been substantially overhauled to reflect these advances, but retains the core information on dental nursing which has made this book a deserved classic!

This latest edition anticipates mandatory registration and the growth of post-certification courses, while continuing in its tradition of providing a generous companion text for those entering the profession and preparing for initial certification. Dental nurses pursuing access to registration will find the book a substantial resource.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Future compulsory registration and continuing training of professionals complementary to dentistry means that books such as this one, which covers all aspects of dental nursing, provides essential - and up to date - reading for both those already involved in the profession and those embarking on training for initial certification.

Weighing in as over 400 pages, this well-indexed textbook is simply a must for all practising and prospective dental nurses."
BDA News, 2004
