Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Amir H. Khatami, DDS (University of Chicago Hospitals)
Description: This book educates individuals in the dental profession on medical management of people with compromised health.
Purpose: The purpose is to list and discuss a series of medical conditions and describe the potential medical emergencies that may be involved. It also describes management procedures for the emergencies.
Audience: The author tried to address all levels of individuals involved in the dental profession. The book is written at a very basic level and may not be as interesting for dentists with higher training.
Features: All the medical emergencies that may happen in the dental office and some medical conditions are discussed. What I like is the way that a problem is posed and the treatment or management is discussed. The self assessment test is also a good idea.
Assessment: The book could be useful for individuals in hygiene or dental assisting school. In dental schools, this subject is covered in a great detail and this book may not necessarily be helpful for dentists.
