Book News Annotation:

In this textbook for dental hygiene students, Nield-Gehrig (allied health and public service education, Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College) and Willmann (periodontics, U. of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio Dental School) compile 38 chapters on the role of the dental hygienist in periodontics. Using an evidence-based approach, a group of specialists in dental hygiene and periodontics, mostly from the US, discuss the periodontum in health, classification and tissue destruction in periodontal diseases, their etiology, gingival disease, periodontitis, assessment, and implementation for therapy. This edition has a new comprehensive patient case. Online access to the full text and instructor and student resources is included. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

This is a primary course textbook providing a comprehensive and easy-to-understand presentation of periodontics for dental hygiene students. The text focuses on the hygienist's role in periodontal therapy and makes effective use of an instructional design that facilitates teaching and learning the material without watering it down. Rather than traditional narrative, the author uses a detailed outline format to present content, making the information easier to read, understand, and reference. The author also integrates an evidence-based approach, which is increasingly important in the field of dental hygiene.
