It guides the reader through the management and communication skills needed to deal with children, and how to support their overall health behaviours.

    Written by renowned authors Angus Cameron and Richard P Widmer, this text is an essential companion for all practitioners who treat children, including undergraduate dental students, general dental practitioners, specialist pediatric dentists, orthodontists and pediatricians.
