ASO. Assistente di studio odontoiatrico. Assistente alla poltrona. Manuale di formazione

Simone Lenzi

editore: Maggioli Editore

pagine: 198

L'Assistente di Studio Odontoiatrico (ASO), o Assistente alla Poltrona, è una figura professionale ormai molto richiesta. Collabora con l'odontoiatra nel lavoro alla poltrona, per l'esecuzione delle prestazioni specialistiche e nell'organizzazione delle attività dello studio, che concernono sia il riordino dell'area d'intervento e la gestione della linea di sterilizzazione, sia le attività amministrative e l'uso di tecnologie informatiche. È logico pensare che l'assistente alla poltrona "ideale", quella che risponda a tutte le aspettative, possa essere difficile da identificare e formare. Peraltro l'affiancamento di un'assistente che abbia ben presente come muoversi e cosa fare all'interno dello studio dentistico, che abbia un affiatamento completo con l'odontoiatra, e che sappia interagire positivamente con i pazienti, rappresenta una qualità che elegge l'assistente alla poltrona tra le figure indispensabili dello studio dentistico, del quale rappresenta la prima immagine.

La dieta del sorriso. Mangiare bene per la salute della bocca

Luca Levrini

editore: Mondadori Electa

pagine: 125

La bocca è il luogo dove il cibo viene per la prima volta in contatto con il nostro corpo e dove gli alimenti generano reazioni positive o negative a denti e gengive. Questo libro permette di iniziare un nuovo e importante percorso di prevenzione orale attraverso una corretta alimentazione. Per prima cosa ci ricorda che la prima digestione avviene in bocca, quindi ci spiega il ruolo importante della saliva e ci fa riflettere sull'importanza dello smalto dei denti e su come proteggerlo e renderlo più resistente. Per ultimo ci illustra nel dettaglio alcune patologie che si manifestano come una relazione diretta tra cibo e salute della bocca. Un'adeguata dieta orale, infatti, non solo aiuta a prevenire l'insorgere delle patologie della bocca, ma ancor più contribuisce a preservarne il benessere in senso più ampio: ne sono esempio la naturalezza, la bellezza e l'attrazione di un sorriso sano.

Sociology and Psychology for the Dental Team

An Introduction to Key Topics

Koula Asimakopoulou, Sasha Scambler
e altri

editore: Wiley-Blackwell (an imprint of John Wiley & Sons Ltd)

pagine: 244

The role that the social and behavioural sciences play in the daily practice of dentistry is now an essential part of all dentistry training, but it can often seem distant from the reality of daily clinical practice. Dentists often ask: what is sociology? Why do I need to know about psychology? Why do I need sociology and psychology to be an effective dentist? How can they help improve my clinical practice? This new textbook answers these important questions and shows how the social and behavioural sciences can inform the practice of dentistry and allied healthcare services in the twenty-first century. It provides a comprehensive, accessible introduction to sociology and psychology for students and members of the dental team with no prior knowledge of the subject, and although the book assumes little or no previous knowledge of psychology or sociology, it also provides enough depth to meet the needs of those with some background in these fields. Throughout, the links between sociology and psychology and everyday practice are emphasized and explained and theoretical concepts are put into the context of everyday clinical work. The authors have extensive experience in teaching and researching the social and behavioural sciences from undergraduate to post-doctoral levels. This book will be an indispensable teaching aid within dental health education, and other allied health and social care disciplines.

Igienista orale. Teoria e pratica professionale

a cura di V. Cortesi Ardizzone, A. Abbinante

editore: Edra

pagine: 768

Un'igiene orale ottimale è premessa sempre più indispensabile per il benessere fisico, psichico e sociale dell'individuo. L'igienista orale ha il compito fondamentale di tutelare la salute del cavo orale della persona in ogni fase della vita e il suo ruolo si è profondamente modificato in questi ultimi anni. Infatti, l'acquisizione di nuove conoscenze, derivate dagli sviluppi della ricerca sia di base sia applicata, ha permesso all'igienista di diventare un interlocutore importante per il paziente nell'ambito della tutela della salute generale, oltre che continuare ad essere il professionista demandato alla gestione della prevenzione delle patologie del cavo orale e della terapia parodontale non chirurgica. Il volume è stato scritto pensando a questo doppio ruolo e, soprattutto, ad una professione in continua evoluzione. Il libro si fonda sui principi del "sapere", del "saper fare" e del "far sapere". Il volume, così realizzato, è un manuale per lo studente e uno strumento di rapida consultazione per il professionista.
