The majority of dental students will choose general practice as their career path. This book prepares final year undergraduates for the difficult transition into primary care. It is essential that students understand how the different areas in primary care can be integrated. As a result, dental schools, usually in the final year of the course, are moving towards general practice by providing comprehensive patient care courses. This book provides a background to the holistic approach senior students are encouraged to use when identifying treatment needs, covering the integration of treatment and its planning, aspects of dental team building, practice selection and management matters.
Although this book is aimed primarily at undergraduates on the dental primary care courses, it will also prove invaluable to vocational trainees and those thinking about going into practice. The newly qualified dental practitioner will also find the text helpful, as there is no other title for them to consult which covers the range of material in this book.
This text achieves its stated aim of holistically combining the business of practice with the science of clinical dentistry and the humanity of patient care … This textbook is essential reading for the target readership and will prove a popular addition to the libraries of UK dental schools.
