This book focuses on helping the practitioner develop THE SKILLS required for dentistry in primary care. It offers comprehensive coverage of diagnosis and oral surgery and introduces the subject of maxillofacial surgery at a depth appropriate for the early stages of training. The clear and structured text is prefaced at the beginning of each chapter by learning objectives and assumed knowledge, all with direct relevance to the work a young practitioner may be expected to undertake, setting the scene for each topic and thus ensuring that the reader maximises the potential use of the book. For this new edition, the chapters concerning pathological conditions of the oral mucosa and bone have been rewritten and there are more self assessment questions and colour illustrations.Table of ContentsWhy and how you should read this book.
