team approach, this book considers how the whole team can
contribute to providing the very best care and support to each and

both to retain satisfied patients and also to drive up standards.
Drawing on the latest research, this book offers a
practical, jargon-free overview of the dentist-patient
relationship, with the aim of creating greater job
satisfaction for the dentist as well as the provision of
better dental care. The book reinforces that pragmatic

applying practical psychological strategies to improve
and underpin it. The central theme of the book is that
dental health care is a two-person endeavour rather than
something that one person does to another.
The latest edition of this already firmly established title is an essential guide for all involved in the provision of oral health education and an ideal companion to the updated Delivering better oral health: an evidence-based toolkit for prevention which was published last year. This seventh edition of the book, which originally surfaced in 1976, has been updated to account for the ever-changing evidence base of the topic.
