Book Description

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.

Editorial Reviews


From reviews of the previous edition:

`It provides a series of literature reviews concerning the topics one would expect in a book with this title, including the prevention of malocclusion and mucosal disease… this is an easy book to use for reference or straight reading… Those with examinations to sit would be foolish not to be acquainted with its contents, and with nearly 300 pages of approaching A4 size, it represents excellent value.’ International Journal of Paediatric Dentistry

`Comprehensive review of prevention of all conditions that affect the mouth, and the implications of the changing pattern of dental disease, and the impact on resources and treatment needed… I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, and it was nice to see the updating of the statistics… this is a very useful book, whether for a student or qualified dentist, and I think it a worthwhile investment and addition to your library.’ Clive Nicholls

`This excellent book assesses the impact of prevention on the main oral diseases. The book provides a concise analysis of the scientific evidence underpinning current approaches to the prevention of oral disease. Considering the range of topics covered, this is a remarkably slim volume presented in a clear and very readable way. This book would sit comfortably in any orthodontic library, and the relatively low price means that it is extremely good value for money.’ European Journal of Orthodontics

`This book has become a prominent contribution to the review literature on the prevention of oral diseases, and this edition will supersede its predecessor in the reference section of my bookshelf.’ Canadian Dental Association Journal

`This is a commendable text for students of community dentistry, dental public health, or preventive dentistry. The book would be equally useful for anyone establishing a community oral health program. Through three editions, this book has managed to remain current while expanding in scope.’ Alpha Omegan: Magazine of the Alpha Omega International Dental Fraternity
