This book features 10 diverse case-based scenarios designed to help dental hygienists sharpen their critical decision- making skills and application of basic dental hygiene knowledge and skills -- from various dental hygiene disciplines -- to client care. It will also help those preparing for the national, regional and state examinations which have a client-care focus. Each chapter contains one complete case scenario with 20 accompanying multiple-choice questions categorized both by difficulty (basic or complex) and by dental hygiene discipline. Contains 10 cases, 2 each representing different client types -- pediatric, adult periodontally involved, geriatric, medically compromised and special needs clients. Each case contains a medical history, dental history, vital signs (including blood pressure, pulse and respiratory rates), radiographs, dental and periodontal charting, intraoral photographs, and photographs of study models, where applicable. Each case lists "deficits" that prompt decision-making opportunities regarding client care and treatment recommendations that promote oral health and prevent oral diseases.
