Dental Hygienist's book from C.H.I.P.S.

Clinical Aspects of Dental Materials
Theory, Practice, and Cases
Third edition
by Marcia Gladwin

Clinical Aspects of Dental Materials provides a practical understanding of dental materials and materials science.

Part I, Theoretical Perspectives, covers the basics, science, and theory of dental materials.

Part II, Laboratory/Clinical Applications, relates materials science to clinical dental hygiene practice.

Part III, Case Studies, presents cases that help students integrate other dental hygiene knowledge with materials science.

This Third Edition has a full-color insert containing photographs with descriptive captions. Two new chapters have been added: "Finishing and Polishing Composite Restorations" and "Tips for the New Hygienist". New review questions designed for course and national boards review have been added to Parts I and II.
