The must have book for orthodontic nurses, 23 Oct 2010
All the things you need to know for the orthodontic nurses exam

Good price
It was very clear and good read

 A ‘must read’ for all dental nurses working in orthodontics, 23 Sep 2010
This is a long-overdue book for dental nurses working in orthodontics – both in practice and hospital settings. It is written in an easy to read style which encourages the reader to keep turning the page. The sequencing of the chapters is logical and takes the reader on the orthodontic journey, from placement of appliances to debond and retention, with the patient. It is an excellent hands-on book for chairside nursing, each procedure being described with step-by-step instructions, and the nurses’ role highlighted in italics. Photographs of orthodontic instruments and materials will allow the trainee nurse to familiarise herself with the necessary equipment. In addition to routine orthdontic procedures, the book covers more complex treatment such as management of cleft lip and palate, orthognathic surgery and mandibular advancement appliances for OSA and snoring. There are chapters supporting dental nurses’ professional development with advice on the Certificate in Orthodontic Nursing and Orthodontic Therapy. This book is essential reading for all trainee orthodontic dental nurses, and should be found on the bookshelf of all orthodontic practices and departments for nurses to dip in and out of. Highly recommended!
