    As a nurse educator, I can say that the Where There Is No Dentist text by the Hesperian Foundation, has been an
    excellent health resource text for us. Both its content, its diagrams and the educational level it was written for, have
    proven to be extremely useful. The content has been very practical in teaching lay Brazilians about oral hygiene and
    health care, as well as for identifying when oral and dental health problems exist and when and how to refer people to a
    dentist. It is rare that excellent health texts like this are written for the lay individuals. --Janette Ryan, Health
    Director Project AmaZon Mission [PAZ], Brazil

    By giving a well-balanced mixture of illustrations and simple, succinct text in layman's terms, the book provides
    valuable, hands-on advice for the most important oral health issues: oral health promotion in the community and basic
    oral care in low-resource settings. --Habib Benzian World Dental Federation (FDI)

    [Where There Is No Dentist is] a full on do-it-yourself guide for community health workers, educators and individuals on
    how to diagnose common dental problems, handle dental equipment, use local anesthetics, place fillings without drilling
    and remove teeth. The book uses simple instructions to make dentistry as accessible as can be. The new edition even
    includes a chapter on oral health and HIV/AIDS, as well as a guide to treat the dental problems commonly faced by people
    living with HIV/AIDS. --Benjamin Joffe-Walt, Chief of Staff,, USA
