During your career, you'll encounter a full spectrum of oral conditions - some that are of dental origin and some that are manifestations of problems in other parts of the body. To fully understand where diseases come from, how they're detected, and how they're treated and prevented, rely on Oral Microbiology and Immunology. It considers all of the latest findings as it guides you from general principles and general bacteriology...virology and parasitology, oral health and disease, and applied microbiology and immunology. You'll be better prepared for clinical boards and clinical practice because the 2nd Edition includes all revisions in the nomenclature for oral micro-organisms; the latest OSHA regulations; new information about AIDS, HIV, and hepatitis control; new in vitro diagnostic tests currently on the market or being evaluated; more on T cell subsets, particularly those associated with AIDS; new data on the prevention of dental caries; classification changes for the streptococci; a greater emphasis on oral ecology and disease; and more!
