|Where There Is No Dentist (Hesperian Foundation, 1983, 210 p.)|
This book is certainly not intended to be the last word in community dental care. It is only a beginning. The author hopes to rewrite and improve the book with suggestions from readers.

Each country is special, with its own particular customs, health needs, and ways of caring for people.

The author would be pleased to assist in any way with those who would translate or adapt the book.
