Book Description

This guidebook outlines the more common medical conditions and what dental practitioners should know when managing patients with conditions such as cardiovascular disease and arthritis and/or who are being treated with medications such as chemotherapy agents. It also offers valuable insight on how dentists can help detect underlying, undiagnosed, or poorly controlled medical conditions, in order to better serve their patients. Dentists play a key role in screening for undiagnosed conditions such as cancer, gastrointestinal disorders, osteoporosis and autoimmune diseases. This book will help all oral practitioners recognize, assess and provide proper dental management for the complex dental patient.
