Behavioral Dentistry, 2nd Edition
December 2013, ©2014, Wiley-Blackwell
Behavioral Dentistry, Second Edition, surveys the vast
and absorbing topic of the role of behavioral science in the study
and clinical practice of dentistry. An understanding of social
sciences has long been a central part of dental education, and
essential for developing a clinician’s appreciation of human
behavior as it affects efficient dental treatment. This book
gathers together contributions from leading experts in each of the
major subspecialties of behavioral dentistry. Its aim is not merely
to provide the student and clinician with a comprehensive review of
the impressive literature or discussion of the theoretical
background to the subject, but also with a practical guide to
adapting the latest techniques and protocols and applying them to
day-to-day clinical practice.
This second edition of Behavioral Dentistry discusses biobehavioral processes, including the psychobiology of inflammation and pain, oral health and quality of life, saliva health, and hypnosis in dentistry. The book goes on to examine anxiety, fear, and dental and chronic orofacial pain, and then reviews techniques for designing and managing behavior change. It concludes with a section on professional practice, including care of special needs, geriatric, and diabetic patients, and interpersonal communication in dental education.
