❞ كتاب Oxford Handbook of Clinical Dentistry Sixth edition ❝
Dental students are introduced to real live patients at an early stage of
their undergraduate course in order to fulfil the requirements for clinical
training, with the result that they are expected to absorb a large quantity of
information in a relatively short time. This is often compounded by clinical
allocations to different specialities on different days, or even the same day.
Given the obvious success of the Oxford handbooks of clinical medicine
and clinical specialities, evidenced by their position in the white coat pockets
of the nation’s medical students, the extension of the same format to dentistry
seems logical. However, it is hoped that the usefulness of this idea will
not cease on graduation, particularly with the introduction of Vocational
Training. While providing a handy reference for the recently qualified graduate,
it is envisaged that trainers will also welcome an aide mémoire to help
cope with the enthusiastic young trainee who may be more familiar with
recent innovations and obscure facts. We also hope that there will be much
of value for the hospital trainee struggling towards FDS.
The Oxford Handbook of Clinical Dentistry contains those useful facts and
practical tips that were stored in our white coat pockets as students and
then postgraduates; initially on scraps of paper, but as the collection grew,
transferred into notebooks to give a readily available reference source.
The dental literature already contains a great number of erudite books
which, for the most part deal exclusively, in some depth, with a particular
branch or aspect of dentistry. The aim of this handbook is not to replace
these specialist dental texts, but rather to complement them by distilling
together theory and practical information into a more accessible format.
In fact, reference is made to sources of further reading where necessary.
Although the authors of this handbook are not the specialized authorities
usually associated with dental textbooks, we are still near enough to the
coal-face to provide, we hope, some useful practical tips based on sound
theory. We were fortunate whilst compiling this handbook in being able to
draw on the expertise of many colleagues; the contents, however, remain
our sole responsibility. The format of a blank page opposite each page of
text has been plagiarized from the other Oxford handbooks. This gives
space for the reader to add his own comments and updates. Please let us
know of any that should be made available to a wider audience.
We hope that the reader will find this book to be a useful addition to their
white coat pocket or a companion to the BNF in the surgery.
Review from previous edition: "Dental students are going to love this book! As a recent graduate I can say that dental students love this book and have done so since the first edition. Now, as hospital trainees, this book is still in all our bags. Its clearly defined chapters offer excellent and concise best principles for nearly all aspects of dentistry...The new edition covers the whole of clinical dentistry in a brief but concise manner."
--British Dental Journal Dec 2009
"This is a most valuable handbook with a wide range of appeal, from the undergraduate and those preparing for a range of postgraduate dental examinations through to trainers and other senior colleagues who need to bring themselves up-to-date with innovations outside their main field of practice"
--Ann R Coll Surg Engl
"You're the best we'll make you better is the promise of the Top Gun school to its fighter pilots. This Handbook is in the same mould....As a specialist I read this Handbook with pleasure and shame; pleasure at a lucid concise style and shame at how much I have forgotten that the authors cover comprehensively"
