Behavior Management in Dentistry for Childrenby Gerald Z. Wright
Synopses & Reviews
Guiding patient behavior is as important as ever for the practicing dentist, and the behavior of
pediatric patients is perhaps the most challenging to manage. Drs. Wright and Kupietzky here update Dr.
Wright’s classic work on managing pediatric dental patients.
Behavior Management in Dentistry for Children, Second Edition, has been entirely rewritten and includes the latest and most effective management strategies from an international team of experts in the field. The book addresses the influence of family and parenting styles on children’s behavior and the factors that determine how children behave in the dental office. Pharmacological and non-pharmacological management techniques are described in depth, as are techniques for working with special needs patients. Clinical scenarios are described throughout the book, with practical application of the taught principles.
The final part of the book covers the dental environment—training office personnel to manage children’s behavior, practical considerations for behavior guidance, and the effects of the physical dental office environment.
Behavior Management in Dentistry for Children, Second Edition, is ideal for pediatric residents, dental students, and practicing dentists who see children on a regular basis.
