Several new resources have been added to the CCDMD catalog in recent weeks.
Third edition of the textbook Hygiéniste dentaire en santé publique
The textbook Hygiéniste dentaire en santé publique, first published in 2011, helps students develop their professional knowledge and reflect on their career orientation in the public health sector in Québec. This third edition is based on the overhaul of the health system and integrates the orientations of the Québec National Public Health Programme for 2015-2025. It was produced by Jean-François Lortie, a teacher at Cégep de Saint-Hyacinthe.
The English version of the textbook, The Dental Hygienist:A Public Health Perspective, was published in 2013.
