Basic Guide to Dental Procedures 2e (EHEP003509) cover image


Basic Guide to Dental Procedures, Second Edition provides an essential introduction to the core preventative and restorative treatments routinely carried out in the modern dental practice. Written as a guide for the whole dental team, ‘before and after’ colour photographs enable the reader to understand and explain the procedures to their patient with confidence. Each section is clearly structured to cover the reasoning behind the treatment described, the relevant dental background, the basics of how each procedure is carried out and any necessary aftercare information.

Key features include:

  • Colour photographs throughout combined with concise text to highlight the crucial points of each procedure
  • Suitable for the whole dental team, from office support staff to the dentist explaining procedures to a patient
  • Thoroughly updated and revised in line with the substantial changes to the role and professional obligations of the dental nurse, including a new chapter detailing extended duties
  • The new images of tray set-ups means it is an ideal companion for trainee dental nurses studying for the NEBDN OSCE exam

“That said, this book would be good to keep in the surgery as a handy ‘go-to’ resource, particularly in the early days of one’s career.”  (Dental Nursing, 1 September 2015)
