Medicine and Surgery for Dentists(previously published as the
Oxford Handbook of Dental Patient Care) is the first in a new
series of Oxford Specialist Handbooks in Dentistry. Bridging the
gap between dental and medical knowledge, it provides postgraduate
dental trainees with practical advice on dealing with clinical
problems not encountered during their university training. This
book covers the many areas of dentistry that overlap with, or
border on, other specialities in the field of medicine and
surgery-including history taking, examination, emergencies, and the
treatment of special care patients. Major updates include general
surgery, trauma and orthopaedics, anaesthesia, and critical care.
It is the ideal resource to enable dental professionals to treat
patients safely and effectively.
