Oral Health Education prepares students and practitioners, to be a resource to health care consumers regarding the promotion of oral health. Included are detailed articulations concerning how individuals perceive oral health, how they can be motivated to improve oral health, and how oral health affects systemic health. Current consumer health care issues and their effect on oral health are explored - drawing the connection between lifestyle influences and systemic health. Additionally, it explores practical methods for helping the reader overcome communication difficulties between patients/clients, community organizations, and other healthcare organizations. The author also explores trends in health perceptions through the lifespan, from infancy to old age. Divided into two main sections, part I details current trends in dental health, oral health statistics, nutrition and lifestyle trends, communication styles and perceptions and prenatal to adolescent trends.
Part II covers adult and elderly trends, special needs populations, chairside dental health education, community education, partnering with Allied Health practitinoers and educators, and the consumers view of oral health products.
