This is an excellent textbook for learning the concepts and practice of dental hygiene. The included CD is a great tool for reinforcing the concepts learned. Highly recommended!
Much Better than Previous Books

I bought this for my second semester of school. I like it way better than the Wilken's text, "Clinical Practice of the Dental Hygienist" that we had before. I like the formatting much better, it explains everything in a way that is easier to understand and the pictures much more informative.
