Help your students understand some of the most elusive fundamentals of epidemiology and biostatistics with this fully updated revision of the bestselling Study Guide to Epidemiology and Biostatistics. The Seventh Edition offers expanded chapters as well as coverage of new topics that have become prevalent in the medical literature such as: receiver-operator curve analysis to improve sensitivity/specificity; the power of a statistical test; one-tailed P values; comparison-wise significance levels versus study-wise significance levels; confidence interval and its relationship to statistical significance; meta-analysis with current methods for assessing heterogeneity and the potential for publication bias; and the use of propensity scoring to reduce bias in non-experimental studies. Key Features: • 46 objectives, expressed in behavioral terms, cite the concepts to be learned and the level at which students are expected to perform • Study Notes, which can be used as the sole source of input to cover the material or used to supplement attendance at a lecture series • Chapter Exercises, which encourage students to immediately use their newly acquired knowledge, and thus improve retention through practice • Multiple Choice Examinations, which have the same scope and are on the same level that students may expect to encounter in professional examinations

From a team of dental hygiene experts including lead editor Barbara Bennett, this Q&A resource is an excellent supplement to any NBDHE content review book! More than 1,680 multiple-choice questions provide comprehensive practice spanning the entire NBDHE, with 1,250+ items relating to Component A — more than six times the number of questions on the actual exam! — and 420 case-based questions related to Component B. Rationales accompany each question, fully explaining why each answer choice is either correct or incorrect and thus serving as secondary content review. Distribution of questions matches each category on the NBDHE test specifications, ensuring that you have adequate practice for each content area. An Evolve companion website includes all 1,250+ questions from the book plus additional case studies with color images and accompanying questions, available either in practice mode with instant feedback or in exam-simulation format with results and feedback provided at the end of the exam. A test creator and timer on Evolve generates NBDHE-style tests that mimic the number and distribution of questions on the NBDHE and also provides realistic practice with time management during the exam. 16 detailed case studies on Evolve, each of which includes a patient medical/dental history, completed periodontal chart, oral radiographs, clinical photographs, and 20-35 multiple-choice questions for patients in the five main categories covered on the NBDHE (adult periodontitis, pediatric, geriatric, special needs, and medically compromised). References to text sources make it easy to review or find more information on specific topics.

Early Childhood Caries

Category: Dental caries in children
Early childhood caries is of significant importance to the growth and development of preschool children. Multiple studies have highlighted how the lesion, if left untreated, results in retarded growth of the child. There are multiple studies on caries in general and less of such publications on early childhood caries in comparison. Yet, the impact of early childhood caries on the life and course of child development is significant. This piece of work pooled together publications on early childhood caries around the world. It highlighted the profile, pattern and risk factors for early childhood caries for 40 countries and pulled together information on 85 of the 193 United Nations countries where there are publications on the lesion. The authors were able to draw a global map of the disease profile and develop recommendations on important next steps for the global management of this lesion. Though the first and last chapters in the book summarise the global profile of early childhood caries, the book highlights country-specific peculiarities in the risk factors and early childhood caries prevention programmes. The authors did assume the story of early childhood caries is the same across the globe. This book was developed with the guiding principle that each country needs to understand the pattern of their early childhood caries epidemic so that they can develop appropriate programmes to address the countrys needs.

This book contains one thousand fixed response questions. It is designed for students of paediatric dentistry who want to prepare for a certifying test or similar examination. Most of those tests use fixed response questions. This book can help students overcome some of the common problems candidates have with MRQ tests. Even as a well-prepared and successful medical student, you likely will not be able to show how good you are in your first, or even second try at a comprehensive fixed response test. There is a good reason for this. Fixed response questions are a blunt instrument. They deny collaboration, reward speed and punish nuance. Unlike what one has become accustomed to in medical school: mentorship, caution against haste, and reward for insight. Without a lot of experience in fixed response tests, you are like a seasoned footballer who is about to be dropped into a rugby scrum. This book will help you get through it. It can be used for quick revision of various topics namely caries epidemiology, prevention and management; pulp therapy; tooth restoration; dental materials; oral medicine; traumatic dental injury; pain and behaviour management; tooth anatomy and physiology; eruption and eruption disorders; and general dentistry for children. There are three basic kinds of fixed-response questions in the book: True/False Questions, Multiple Choice Questions and Multiple Response Questions. The introduction section of the book provides readers with 10 quick guides on how to make yourself familiar with the vast material in the book. At the end of the book are the answers to the questions as well as a blank answer sheet which you could use during your personal studies. The book shall be revised every three years to ensure it addresses contemporary issues in paediatric dentistry as well as ensure it contains information on current concepts in paediatric dentistry.
