Guiding patient behavior is as important as ever for the practicing
dentist, and the behavior of pediatric patients is perhaps the most
challenging to manage. Drs. Wright and Kupietzky here update Dr.
Wright's classic work on managing pediatric dental patients.
Behavior Management in Dentistry for Children,2nd Edition, has been
entirely rewritten and includes the latest and most effective
management strategies from an international team of experts in the
field. The book addresses the influence of family and parenting
styles on children's behavior and the factors that determine how
children behave in the dental office. Pharmacological and
non-pharmacological management techniques are described in depth,
as are techniques for dealing with special needs patients. Clinical
scenarios are described throughout the book, with practical
application of the taught principles. The final part of the book
covers the dental environment-training office personnel to manage
children's behavior, practical considerations for behavior
guidance, and the effects of the physical dental office
environment. Behavior Management in Dentistry for Children,2nd
Edition, is ideal for pediatric residents, dental students, and
practicing dentists who see children on a regular basis.
