Abstract:

Of all of the diseases known to man, hepatitis remains the one of chief concern to dental personnel. Mainly affecting the liver, the organ used in filtering and processing biochemical structures, the hepatitis virus can present itself in several forms, some far more contagious and dangerous than others. The modes of transmission for Hepatitis A, B, C, D and E, as well as the causes and effects of each form are discussed. The precautionary procedures for dental management of the hepatitis patient, HBV in particular, are also discussed.
