"We wrote this book as a practical manual introducing dental students and professionals to evidence-based suggestions for effective patient communication [...] Part I presents fundamental communication skills for dental professionals. Part II presents those skills as they are applied in specific types of patient interactions. Part III presents chairside strategies to facilitate communication with patients during each stage of a regular appointment. Part IV presents situations that sometimes challenge dental professionals and offers communication strategies for managing such challenges. This book reviews broad skills and presents specific strategies for optimal patient-provider communication. To enhance comprehension and retention of the material, each chapter includes activities such as exercises, discussion topics, and self-tests. In addition, because patient communication involves professional ethics, common ethical dilemmas are included throughout the text in a feature called "Question of ethics." This features fosters ethical behavior by enabling readers to consider how to respond to ethical dilemmas before they happen. Finally, checklists are now the state of the art in health care, so in lieu of chapter summaries we have included a checklist near the end of each chapter to provide a quick summary of the recommended communication strategies."
