25% Off | Wright's Behavior Management in Dentistry for Children
Professor Gerald Wright, who developed the basics of behavior management in dentistry for children, was the longest serving Secretary General at the IAPD (1999 – 2011) and demonstrated exceptional leadership skills. Among his initiatives was creating Dentists for All Children (later renamed the “Teach the Teachers’ Educational Workshop), which helps academics in low-income nations by enhancing paediatric dental education. In addition he served as an Examiner of the Royal College of Dentistry.
The title is a dedication in honor of Prof. Gerard Z. Wright (1935 – 2019), who is referred to as the father of modern behavior management in paediatric dentistry.
IAPD members can now get the newly revised edition of the book, Wright’s Behaviour Management in Dentistry for Children at a reduced rate, at a 25% discounted rate (login to the member area to see the unique code).
