Oral Pathology for the Dental Hygiene is a text that focuses on the topics typically taught in the dental hygiene curriculum, setting this text apart from all other oral pathology texts. It presents the necessary information in a clear, simple manner. Based on suggestions from reviewers of past editions, this book features more user-friendly chapters that have been reorganized to be more efficient and concise, in addition to flowing in a more logical order. It provides readers of varying skill and experience levels with the information necessary to understand, recognize, and evaluate pathologic conditions and diseases likely to be encountered. Full-color, atlas-style text provides the perfect format for a subject requiring so much visual instruction. Clinical photographs, radiographs, and color photomicrographs showcase the diseases and conditions dental hygienists will most likely encounter and treat in practice, as well as helping them learn to identify the appearance of disease formations at the skeletal and cellular levels. Review questions at the end of each chapter help prepare students for taking the national exam and four clinical practicing hygienists.
