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.
