This workbook provides a range of exercises to reinforce students' understanding of key concepts and strengthen the foundation they'll need in dental hygiene practice. The progression of exercises encourages students to master fundamental concepts, build competency, and gain the ability to think critically. Some of the exercises will help the student practice making patient care decisions. This edition uses more patient case studies as the basis for exercises, and includes a "Questions Patients Ask" feature with guidelines on how to respond. An evidence-based primer outlines the basics of providing evidence-based dental hygiene care.
