From the rather sheltered academic environment of the university, the graduate dental provider is thrown into the world to deal with often difficult and sometimes worrying clinical problems. All the information required by postgraduates is, however, difficult to gather into a simple form. This book offers the resident in a general hospital, and also senior members of the profession an aide-memoire that complements their undergraduate training. This book presents the more practical aspects of diagnosis and management, mainly in note and tabular form, primarily for staff in hospital positions, but also in community and general dental practice. It covers areas of dentistry that overlap with, or border on, other specialties in the field of medicine and surgery. It includes practical aspects of Oral Medicine and Pathology, and Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, including Traumatology, and relevant aspects of sedation, anaesthetics, and therapeutics. The most important role of this book is to bridge the gap between undergraduate dental and medical knowledge, allowing the dental professional to be able to take a full medical history, examine the patient, perform the appropriate investigations, appreciate the patient's medical problems and their implications on dental management, and finally enabling them to treat their patients in a safe and effective way.
