Just released is the 11th edition of Chairside Instructor (W013), ADA’s best-selling patient education picture guide.

The expanded visual guide includes more than 250 full-color photos and illustrations— with 51 that are new or revised — covering a wide range of prevention and treatment topics that can better explain what patients need to know.

New content now includes the addition of these topics:
• Effects of sugar on oral health.
• Steps of filling a cavity.
• Tooth erosion.
• Gum recession.
• Peri-implantitis.
• Tobacco.

Chairside Instructor is also available in Spanish and as an e-Book or app for iOS devices.
