The new edition of Prevention of Oral Disease remains the only comprehensive textbook covering all aspects of dental prevention. Chapters covering conventional preventive issues such as diet and fluorides are complemented by innovative new or revised material in a wide range of areas, including mucosal disease, the pulp and endodontics and periodontal disease. Generic subjects such as the social dimension of oral health and health promotion underpin the clinically based chapters. The book is relevant to anyone who has to provide or understand prevention, irrespective of their clinical discipline or interest.
This is an essential text for undergraduates, but will be valuable for postgraduate students in many fields, and for dental practitioners and hygenists interested in current thinking on prevention. The material presented is concise, structured and well illustrated and is based on the most recent research evidence. For the first time, the book is presented in an attractive two-colour format and the use of summaries and key points throughout the book ensure that it is learner friendly.
