Clinical Aspects of Dental Materials provides dental hygiene students with a practical understanding of dental materials and materials science. Part I, Theoretical Perspectives, covers the basics, science, and theory of dental materials. Part II, Laboratory/Clinical Applications, relates materials science to clinical dental hygiene practice. Part III, Case Studies, presents cases that help students integrate other dental hygiene knowledge with materials science.
This Third Edition has a full-color insert containing photographs with descriptive captions. Two new chapters have been added: “Finishing and Polishing Composite Restorations” and “Tips for the New Hygienist”. New review questions designed for course and national boards review have been added to Parts I and II.
Excellent Textbook, March 31, 2000
This book is written for dental hygiene students, but it would also make an excellent undergraduate dental text. It is organized by dental application and includes laboratory exercises at the end. The format is affordable soft cover and two-column outline text with well-chosen black and white figures. This book is less technical than Phillips’ (Skinner’s) Science of Dental Materials.
Excellent, January 9, 2012
This book presents the information excellently! Very easy to follow, which made learning easier. I read every page of this book and it was easy to study from and find the important information to know. I passed the class that required this text with an A!
Good Textbook, September 5, 2010
This is a well-written textbook. The information is given in a way that is easy to understand. A couple of the chapters are a little “dry”, but overall it’s pretty good.
