Very Useful!  June 24, 2011

This is a great textbook. Rather than traditional narrative, the author uses a detailed outline format to present content, making the information easier to read, understand, and reference. The author also integrates an evidence-based approach, which is increasingly important in the field of dental hygiene. I recommend this textbook for all dental hygienists and ecampus for purchasing, I bought a lot of stuff from ecampus and they always deliver it fast and in great condition. I have never had any problems with ecampus.
