Back and better than ever, Darby and Walsh’s Dental Hygiene: Theory and Practice, 5th Edition offers the perfect level of coverage to take your students through their coursework and certification and onto tremendous success in clinical practice. No other dental hygiene foundational text incorporates clinical competencies, theory, and evidence-based practice in such an approachable way. All discussions — from foundational concepts to diagnosis to pain management — are presented within the context of a unique patient-centered model that takes the entire person into consideration. A veritable who’s-who of dental hygiene educators, practitioners, and researchers cite the latest studies throughout the text to provide a framework to help students in their decision-making and problem-solving. New to this fifth edition is a much more streamlined approach — one that stays focused on need-to-know and practically applicable information, yet also houses expanded content on things like alternative practice settings, pediatric care, risk assessment, and dental hygiene diagnosis to add context when needed. This edition is also filled with new illustrations and high-resolution clinical photos to augment learning. If you haven’t been utilizing Darby and Walsh’s groundbreaking text before, it’s time to take a look at all you’re missing out on.
