Staying true to Esther Wilkins’ pioneering vision that made her seminal text the “Bible” for dental hygienists, Wilkins’ Clinical Practice of the Dental Hygienist, Thirteenth Edition progresses through crucial topics in dental hygiene in a straightforward, outline format to ensure students develop the knowledge and skills they need for successful, evidence-based practice in today’s rapidly changing oral health care environment.
This cornerstone text in almost every dental hygiene education program in the country has been meticulously updated by Linda Boyd and Charlotte Wyche (both previous co-authors) and new co-author Lisa Mallonee to even better meet the needs of students and faculty today, while reflecting the current state of practice in dental hygiene. Now featuring a brand-new chapter, expanded information related to diagnosis, and streamlined content, the thirteenth edition continues to offer the breadth and depth necessary to make it an ideal resource, not only for the foundational course, but also for the entire dental hygiene curriculum.
