Surgery, however minor, carries special responsibilities. These responsibilities include certainty as to the need to operate, having the necessary knowledge and competencies, meeting patient expectations to be skilful and minimally interventive yet effective, and the ability to deal with complications and emergencies as and when they may arise.
Minor Oral Surgery in Dental Practice, volume 27 in the immensely popular Quintessentials series, is a modern, authorative and practical consideration of these responsibilities as they relate to surgery in the everyday clinical practice of dentistry. From patient assessment through to managing complications and emergencies, with chapters on surgical principles, relevant pharmacology and the various types of surgery undertaken in clinical practice, the text is logically structured, easy to read, exceptionally well illustrated and peppered with practical guidance - everything expected of a volume in the Quintessentials series. In addition, and in common with all the volumes in the series, this book may be read over an evening or two and has been prepared to subsequently make a valuable addition to the reference texts the dental team should have to hand. Overall, this is an excellent addition to the Quintessentials series.
Whether you need to update your knowledge and understanding of the surgical aspects of clinical practice, or just wish to reassure yourself that you are up to speed in this regard, Minor Oral Surgery in Dental Practice will be a valuable acquisition - an attractive, informative, value-for-money book that will be a pleasure to read and own.
