Description: Ethics, Jurisprudence and Practice Management in Dental Hygiene, 2eisnbsp;designed to orient dental hygiene students to clinical practice and its many applications in an office setting. Although dentists, dental practices, and dental hygiene can be generalized, each practice will be unique in its daily operations and policies. Thisnbsp;book explains how in this new millennium, the art and science of dental hygiene continues to progress and evolve. More states have entered into independent or alternative practice settings for experienced dental hygienists. Supervision laws have been relaxed that allow for increase access to care and help eliminate disparities among diverse and underserved population groups. Strategies are being developed to increase cultural competencies and multidisciplinary collaboration, as well as, to increase the number ofnbsp; minorities in the oral health workfoce. Dental hygienists are utilizing more of their skills as oral health is becoming an important entity of general health. And, dental hygienists are becoming more responsible for the regulation of the their profession, the profession of dental hygiene.
