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.

This edition features new “Oral Medicine Considerations” that highlight the relationship between oral and systemic disease, a stunning collection of art work with over 600 images, and a wide range of online resources, such as case studies and practice questions, that reinforce student learning.
