5.0 out of 5 stars.  Should be on the shelf of every dental professional, October 31, 2012
By A Customer
Dr. Kutsch and Mr. Bowers deliver in the slim, impactful book an amazingly credible definition of the new paradigm for caries management. This isn't the newest version of how to sell dentistry or fix teeth and gums. Each of the chapters clearly takes readers through the steps of CAMBRA-caries management by risk assessment from understanding the disease process, identifying and understanding specific risk factors to creating individualized plans with patients. The book paints a strategy for success for both patients and practitioners by including case studies, insurance benefit coding and the science behind the philosophy.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  "Balance," the "Rosetta Stone" for those seeking to understand tooth decay., October 27, 2012
By MtnMike
I have been a dentist for over 30 years. "Balance" is at the foundation of a paradigm shift in the way we understand the tooth decay/caries process. Whether a dental professional or a patient (and in reality, we are all patients) "Balance" will give you an appreciation as to WHY some people get decay more than others and HOW to manage and halt the decay process.

When I was in dental school, decay was battled with a toothbrush, floss. Today, and since 2007's landmark research on CAMBRA (CAries Management By Risk Assessment) dental caries is taught to be a communicable disease. Preventing caries requires understanding and managing diet, saliva, AND bacteria. Brushing and flossing still remain foundational tools in our fight, but if you still get cavities, after reading "Balance" you will understand the missing link in your battle.

I have given this book to the hygienists, periodontists, and orthodontic offices that I work with. I now believe that dental caries need never exist, and if it does exist, need never progress. Bold statement? Is it easy? If you value the investment you have made in your oral health, "Balance" will teach you how to protect those pearly whites.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  Help! I have a dry mouth. :, September 13, 2012
By TJ
I am a patient. The section in the book about dry mouth problems resulting from medication applies to me. I am pleased to not only be educated but find a real answer for this problem! I appreciate seeing real data. I will share this text with my dentist and friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  Ties everything together, September 13, 2012
By C. Moriarity
We work with a lot of dental offices that have bits and pieces of this problem, but this book provides a very nice 1-2-3 understanding of the entire process. The problem is very complex, but its easy to read and digest. This could easily be a staple in every dental office and school.
