dc.description.abstractA practical and comprehensive guide to the planning and implementation of programmes designed to prevent oral disease. Concerned with preventive measures that are cost-effective as well as successful, the book concentrates on only those programmes that are relevant to sizeable community problems and for which demonstrable improvements can be attained. Recommended measures, all of which have been substantiated by research demonstrating their effectiveness, are presented together with advice on their most appropriate use in a variety of different social and economic settings. Though a number of different oral diseases are considered, major emphasis is placed on methods for the primary prevention of dental caries and periodontal disease. The book has two main parts. The first introduces the reader to the essential elements of each stage in the planning process, moving from oral health situation analysis, the setting of objectives, and the selection of appropriate preventive measures to methods for programme implementation and monitoring. Numerous tables and charts are used to illustrate the components of preventive programmes, the factors that should be considered when selecting an appropriate preventive measure, and the elements that can influence manpower needs and costs. To facilitate cost-effective planning, readers are also given a series of five examples of preventive programmes based on the level of resources, ranging from minimal to plentiful, available for oral health care. The second part of the book offers guidance in the planning of programmes designed to prevent a particular oral disease or defect, including oral cancer, diseases of the oral mucosa, and developmental and acquired defects as well as dental caries and periodontal disease. Concise yet comprehensive, the book contains all the information needed to alert planners and administrators to the many factors that can influence the success of programmes to prevent oral diseasesen
