This updated 3rd Edition of General and Oral Pathology for the Dental Hygienist provides the information students need to develop an understanding of basic pathology and recognize the clinical manifestations of oral and systemic disease.

In accordance with ADEA Curriculum Guidelines, which stress the recognition of oral disease based on clinical signs and symptoms, the oral pathology section is uniquely organized by distinct clinical/radiographic features of oral lesions to help students evaluate and categorize lesions according to appearance, emphasizing the concept of differential diagnosis.

We've added some exciting new features to this title:
  • New! Emphasis on Oral Medicine. Information regarding oral medicine considerations is highlighted in the text, aligning with ADEA Curriculum Guidelines recommendations.
  • New! Board exam-style questions have been added for each chapter, enhancing end-of-chapter content.
  • New! An online, searchable Clinical Protocols eBooklet that features nearly 30 protocols written by experts in the field provides quick access to patient management information essential for practicing and student hygienists.
  • New! A searchable and printable Condition Summary eBooklet provides quick access to the most important information about the conditions discussed in each chapter.
