This is a Super Text! March 28, 2008
I have been teaching dental hygiene instrumentation since 1971, now I wonder how instructors ever did it without a text like “Fundamentals of Periodontal Instrumentation and Advanced Root Instrumentation.” This text provides the words and the images so that our students “get it”. It is amazinig how everything is broken down into clear steps with prompts that help put everything together. This is not just a text for schools. Practicing hygienists get this text. I guarantee you will be amazed at how much you will learn. You won’t be able to put it down.
Fundamentals of Periodontal Instrumentation April 2, 2008
This is the best resource for teaching and learning periodontal instrumentation on the market. It is written in such a way that each small movement is reduced to exact detail so that scaling becomes an art and science.
