Description

Prevention Strategies for Oral Health provides a practical approach to prevention, the mainstay of dental hygiene practice. Primary prevention remains pivotal to successful dental and dental hygiene practice. This quick-reference clinical handbook will show how powerful preventive care can be and re-focus the dental professional's efforts in this area.

The book is logically structured around a life-stage approach, from pre-birth to seniors. Each chapter focuses on the specific needs of an age group and offers targeted prevention strategies for this life stage. Covering clinical instruction, research, oral health goals, strategies, communication skills, and appropriate products, Prevention Strategies for Oral Health will guide the reader in incorporating preventative care in daily practice.

While the information is vitally important to dental hygienists, all members of the oral health care team can benefit from these concepts. By presenting advanced knowledge of prevention in a hands-on, patient-centered format, Prevention Strategies for Oral Health will appeal to students and practitioners alike.
