Overview

This book provides essential knowledge for creating treatment plans for adult dental patients. Treatment planning strategies are presented to help with balancing the ideal with the practical, with emphasis placed on the central role of the patient — whose needs should drive the treatment planning process. The focus is on planning of treatment, not on the comprehensive details of every treatment modality in dentistry.

• CD-ROM bound into book presents five cases of varying difficulty with interactive exercises that allow users to plan treatment.

• What's the Evidence? boxes link clinical decision-making and treatment planning strategies to current research.

• In Clinical Practice boxes highlight specific clinical situations faced by the general dentist.

• Review Questions and Suggested Projects, located at the end of each chapter, summarize and reinforce important concepts presented in the book.

• Key Terms and Glossary highlights the terms that are most important to the reader.

• Suggested Readings lists included at the end of most chapters provide supplemental resources.

• Chapter on Treatment Planning for the Special Care/Special Needs Patient examines the role of the general dentist in the management of patients with a variety of conditions including physical handicaps, mental handicaps, head trauma, hemophilia, and patients' needs before, during, or after major surgery.

• Chapter on Treatment Planning for the Alcohol and Substance Abuser discusses the challenges of treating this patient population, as well as how to recognize the problem, delivery of care, scope of treatment, and behavioral/compliance issues.

• Expanded content on Ethical and Legal Issues in Treatment Planning reflects new accreditation guidelines.
