Clinical Problem Solving in Dentistry Text and Evolve eBooks Package, 3rd Edition
Edward W Odell, FDSRCS, MSc, PhD, FRCPath
This book is designed to explain to dental students the processes of diagnosis and treatment planning, through consideration of clinical cases and problems associated with aspects of all dental specialties. It presents a series of case histories from all the major areas of dentistry, and uses a question-and-answer format to guide readers through the process of examination, differential diagnosis, investigations, diagnosis and treatment. It prepares readers for the wide variety of problems likely to be encountered in clinical practice.
All cases from the first edition have been updated, and 13 new cases have been added to this edition.
Additional information is provided on behavioral management of nervous or difficult patients.
More content on pediatric dentistry has been added.
56 cases in clinical dentistry are presented in a practical, problem-based approach, leading the reader toward the correct diagnosis and treatment plan.
Treatment alternatives are explored and evaluated in terms of their advantages and disadvantages.
Material from all the dental specialties is integrated in the cases presented, in order to cover the full range of real-world clinical problems.
Color illustrations throughout bring the cases to life and clarify important concepts.
"...the value of this resource extends far beyond undergraduate teaching. Qualified practitioners, especially new graduates, would find the book a useful clinical practice reference manual. Postgraduate teachers and vocational trainers could benefit from the case study approach when preparinf for tutorials. When your first patient comes in with 'fractured incisors' and the next is a pain in the neck' this book might just be the place to which you should turn."
