The focus is on checklists, helpful hints and practical information with full colour photographs and diagrams to illustrate good practice in all aspects of dental nursing. The book is aimed principally at dental nurses in practice, especially those who are newly qualified, returning to work, or those ′grandparented′ in terms of registration. Student dental nurses will find this a valuable guide to the clinical environment. In all, an excellent ready reference for every dental surgery.
