Overview

Now in its third edition, this beautifully illustrated reference is a storehouse of important information on oral and maxillofacial diseases. Nearly 800 dynamic, full-color images demonstrate the relationship between medical conditions and maxillofacial diseases, using clinical examples to clarify key points. The text covers everything from viral and bacterial infections, diseases of all major organ systems and chemical agents, to differential diagnosis and management, neoplasms, and mental disorders. One of the most comprehensive resources available, this encyclopedic volume provides the diagnostic and treatment guidelines you need for successful patient care. It belongs on the shelf of all oral and maxillofacial surgeons, dental surgeons, oral physicians, otolaryngologists, and other related specialists.

The book contains predominantly color illustrations, with some black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Robert A. Goepp
This is the second edition of a book that represents a notable development in textbooks dealing with patient care. Clinicians are faced with a considerable increase in the amount of knowledge required for practice, and they are faced with a very pressing need for time efficiency. The authors apparently recognized the need of clinicians to quickly and accurately get enough information to answer clinical questions while the patient may yet be in the examining room. Hence, this book, although large and heavy, is an exceptionally useful tool lying on a table in a clinic or office. It is directed to clinical practitioners as a quick, comprehensive reference. The illustrations, in color except for x-ray films, are not only technically excellent but also are very good representations of the subject. Traditional references are not included, but there is a section that lists supporting published articles listed by page rather than by specific illustrations. These references appear to be contemporary and sufficiently comprehensive for clinical purposes. There is a section dealing with medications, which is useful when dealing with patients who may being using medications that the examining clinician does not use. Further, a clinician may not have a specific entity in mind when observing a clinical phenomenon. There is a section on differential diagnosis that provides efficient guidance for the clinician. This book appears to be designed to support practice by busy clinicians. The book well accomplishes that goal.
From The Critics
Reviewer: Robert A. Goepp, DDS, PhD (University of Chicago Medical Center)
Description: This is the second edition of a book that represents a notable development in textbooks dealing with patient care. Clinicians are faced with a considerable increase in the amount of knowledge required for practice, and they are faced with a very pressing need for time efficiency.
Purpose: The authors apparently recognized the need of clinicians to quickly and accurately get enough information to answer clinical questions while the patient may yet be in the examining room. Hence, this book, although large and heavy, is an exceptionally useful tool lying on a table in a clinic or office.
Audience: It is directed to clinical practitioners as a quick, comprehensive reference.
Features: The illustrations, in color except for x-ray films, are not only technically excellent but also are very good representations of the subject. Traditional references are not included, but there is a section that lists supporting published articles listed by page rather than by specific illustrations. These references appear to be contemporary and sufficiently comprehensive for clinical purposes. There is a section dealing with medications, which is useful when dealing with patients who may being using medications that the examining clinician does not use. Further, a clinician may not have a specific entity in mind when observing a clinical phenomenon. There is a section on differential diagnosis that provides efficient guidance for the clinician.
Assessment: This book appears to be designed to support practice by busy clinicians. The book well accomplishes that goal.
