General and Oral Pathology for the Dental Hygienist, 2nd Edition, is a comprehensive study of the general concepts of pathophysiology as they relate to systemic and oral conditions. The only dental hygiene book on the market to address both oral and general pathology, General and Oral Pathology for the Dental Hygienist is the ideal solution for programs that cover oral and general pathology in one course, and provides an easily accessible review of general pathology for programs that cover oral pathology separately. The Oral Pathology section is uniquely organized by distinct recognizable characteristics of lesions (for example, “white” lesions or “radiolucent” lesions), a uniquely practical and highly effective way of presenting this information since dental hygienists have to evaluate pathology based on what they see. This allows the student to easily identify what he or she might be looking at and to differentiate between lesions with similar appearances.

Sweeping changes in infection control and disease containment have had a significant impact on dentistry in the past decade. Because dental assistants are more likely to assume responsibility for this area of dental practice, it is necessary that students enrolled in dental assisting programs receive stringent training and education in infection control and environmental health. Infection Control for Dental Assistants addresses the requirements of the national Infection Control Examination (ICE) as set forth by the Dental Assisting National Board (DANB) Task Analysis. The text is separated into five major areas according to their relevance to the dental assistant's role in infectious disease prevention, and contains numerous hands-on procedures and assessment questions designed to help readers track their comprehension and retention of presented material. Infection Control for Dental Assistants will also be helpful as a refresher resource for dental assistants already in private practice and as a chairside reference.
