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.

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
[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.
