Description

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.
