Hollins, a dental practitioner and author in the UK, offers a comprehensive textbook for dental nurses that is aligned with the curriculum content of the UK's National Examining Board for Dental Nurses (NEBDN) new National Diploma qualification. To help them prepare for the exam, the text covers the structure of the dental profession, the dental nurse's role, legal and ethical issues, anatomy and physiology, medical emergencies, microbiology and pathology, cleanliness, oral disease, oral health assessment and diagnosis, oral health promotion and disease prevention, pain and anxiety control, restorative dentistry, prosthodontics, extractions and minor oral surgery, and other topics. This edition reflects legislative and regulatory changes, including issues related to health and safety, infection control, information governance, quality assurance requirements, and the expansion of the concept of continuous professional development into the idea of reflective practice. It has links to websites for more information on topics, particularly the NEBDN's curriculum and charting booklet download facilities, and links to more information on topics with national variations. More photos and illustrations are included, as well as bullet points. A companion website features multiple-choice and extended matching questions.
