Inside patients' heads, and nudity on the cover?

Thank you so much for your "trip inside a patient's head" article. We never can really tell what is going on in our patients' lives. So many people are hurting. I try always to improve my patient's day rather than ruin it. I keep my oral hygiene instruction positive and user friendly. I try to focus on what is good and encourage them.

The contents of the "Pregnancy and Oral Health" may be beneficial, but the cover is not suitable for the general public. I've had three children, and can appreciate the beauty of motherhood, but feel no need to plaster nudity of any sort on the covers of books. I would not recommend this reading without first making the recipient aware of the cover.
