Oxford Handbook of Clinical Dentistry / Edition 5

Paperback (Print)

Overview


Dental students are required to treat patients from an early stage of their training, and therefore have to assimilate a large amount of information in a relatively short time. In addition, clinical work will often involve different specialties on successive days. This handbook is designed to provide a readily accessible source of information, not only for students but also vocational and hospital trainees, available at the point of need - in the white coat pocket. Particular emphasis is placed on recent techniques and developments which will also be of interest to the more experienced GDP who wishes to keep up-to-date. The whole of clinical dentistry is covered, plus chapters on practice management, law and ethics, medicine relevant to dentistry, and useful information and addresses, in a concise page a subject format, with an adjacent blank page for notes.

"...a new edition of a successful handbook that offers practical and concise information for dental students... completely updated and including blank pages for additional information."
