If there was a catastrophic event that left you stranded for a very long time, would you be able to care for your personal dentistry health? This may not sound important until you really consider the consequences of years of isolation without any professional dental help. This book defines what you need to know to take care of your personal dentistry health when there are no dentists to help.
This book has 2 parts. The first part (Chapters 1–5) discusses teaching and learning about preventive care. It begins by encouraging the health worker to examine herself and her family. To be a good example is the best way to teach. The second part (Chapters 6–11) talks about diagnosing and treating common dental problems. It is especially for those who live where they cannot reach or afford a dentist. A poor neighborhood in the city can be as distant and neglected as a far-off village. This second part is intended mainly for health workers who have helped organize people to meet their own needs.
As you can see, this is an invaluable tool for anyone who wants to be able to keep their personal dentistry health in any situation, now or in the event of an emergency that leaves you without medical and dental help. This very informative 240 page booklet covers a wide range of basic dental needs and how to take care of them on your own. It is an indispensable guide for anyone and is of particular importance for isolated communities and as a survival guide.
