After more than twenty years of recognition as the indispensable guide for all dental students and practitioners, the Oxford Handbook of Clinical Dentistry has been fully revised and updated for its new sixth edition, now better than ever!
The authors have distilled the essentials of clinical practice into a readily accessible style. Concise and practically focused, the handbook balances a pragmatic approach alongside evidence-based clinical knowledge, guidelines and protocols. This handbook is in full colour, with even more images and diagrams to aid understanding. It has been fully updated with sources and further reading, including the most up-to-date e-learning and web resources.
The handbook includes revised chapters on fast-moving areas of dental practice such as therapeutics and anaesthesia, as well as updates on the aetiology and management of cancer, reflecting recent discoveries. New material also includes the impact of bisphosphonates, and new approaches to the management of Class III malocclusions in the growing child. Sections on the differences in healthcare and legal requirements of the UK devolved countries have been added, and all life support protocols have been updated.
This concise and practical distillation of the essential knowledge and skills for dental practice has been highly regarded by dental students and practitioners for over twenty years. Now it is more vital than ever for you to ensure the most up-to-date edition is always close to hand!
Review from previous edition Dental students are going to love this book! As a recent graduate I can say that dental students love this book and have done so since the first edition. Now, as hospital trainees, this book is still in all our bags. Its clearly defined chapters offer excellent and concise best principles for nearly all aspects of dentistry…The new edition covers the whole of clinical dentistry in a brief but concise manner. (British Dental Journal)
This is a most valuable handbook with a wide range of appeal, from the undergraduate and those preparing for a range of postgraduate dental examinations through to trainers and other senior colleagues who need to bring themselves up-to-date with innovations outside their main field of practice (Ann R Coll Surg Engl)
You’re the best we’ll make you better is the promise of the Top Gun school to its fighter pilots. This Handbook is in the same mould….As a specialist I read this Handbook with pleasure and shame; pleasure at a lucid concise style and shame at how much I have forgotten that the authors cover comprehensively (International Dental Journal)
Absolutely first class. No one should be without one of these at any stage of their career. Ideal aide mémoire for all those things you don’t do or think about regularly. Helps to avoid those ‘ well what am I going to do about this’ moments. Tells you what you want to know accurately and succinctly.
An excellent handbook to have during your studies, or in clinical practice. Covers almost every general topic, in a simple, correct and easy to read way. Recommended. Great value for money.
….[A] mine of information in miniature format….In terms of value this has to be a best buy at this cover price….it is an essential purchase for any practitioner treating patients….It will have a place in my practice library and probably be used on a day-to-day basis (Dental Practice)
