New books. No.1 is an eBook, No.3 is print & electronic

Ultrasonic periodontal debridement: theory and technique. / Marie D. George. Ames, Iowa: John Wiley & Sons Inc., 2014.

This is the first textbook to focus exclusively on this fundamentally important component of periodontal therapy.

Local anesthesia for dental professionals / Kathy B. Bassett. 2nd ed, Pearson: Boston, 2014.

The 2nd edition provides a user-friendly, primary resource for instructors and students of pain control. This text is appropriate for both dental and dental hygiene students and provides step-by-step instructions that are also useful to practicing clinicians seeking to improve their skills or learn new injection techniques. In addition to the superb illustrations, step-by-step approach, and easy-to-understand language established in the first edition, the new second edition includes both local anesthesia and nitrous oxide-oxygen sedation.

Basic methods for assessment of renal fluoride excretion in community prevention programmes for oral health/ Geneva: World Health Organization, 2014.

This manual informs about practical procedures in assessment of renal fluoride excretion based on experience from existing national fluoridation programs. The assessment tools will primarily be useful in assisting countries in achieving an effective fluoride exposure. It is a hope that the manual will stimulate oral health personnel and public health administrators to use a systematic approach for managing and analyzing data obtained from different levels of fluoride exposure. Finally, the manual encourages inter-country collaboration on surveillance systems for community programs using fluoride for prevention of dental caries.
