Book Description

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.

Improved images, but missing study questions provided by 2nd editionMarch 9, 2011

The format of the book is easy to read and well organized. This text was required in class and I bought the updated 3rd edition, but was disappointed that the study questions that were provided at the end of each chapter in the 2nd edition, weren’t included in the newer book. Doesn’t go into extreme detail, but it is easy to understand and explains concepts well.

Good, January 9, 2012

This book is pretty easy reading and has lots of good illustrations that contribute to learning the material. I read half of the chapters from this book and finished with a B in the class this book was required in.
