    This is the best TMD book I have ever read!

    It is an outstanding evidence-based clinical guide explicitly recommending how dentists can diagnose and best treat the multitude of variances we see among TMD patients.  General dentists can proficiently treat the great majority of TMD patients and Dr. Wright warns to consider referral for the specific situations in which the patient's condition is beyond most general dentist's expertise.  I highly recommend all general dentists read this book!
