The Basic Guide to Dental Procedures provides an indispensable induction to the core preventative and restorative treatments routinely carried out in the modern dental practice. Written as an introductory guide for the whole dental team, it makes no attempt to explain the theory and clinical technique behind each procedure in detail. Rather, with the aid of 'before and after' colour illustration it offers sufficient overview to enable the reader to understand and explain procedures to their patient with confidence. Each section is clearly structured to cover the reasoning behind the treatment described, the relevant dental background, the basics of how each procedure is carried out and if applicable, aftercare information.

This book is about a slightly fictionalized account of my life in dental school, inspired by actual events. Embellishments of strange happenings were unnecessary because human foibles ran rampant. However, all names and places have been changed so as not to embarrass the guilty, inept and downright scurvy. The stories are retold in a series of vignettes which best captured my mood at the time. These mostly bizarre and anguishing tales are set amidst a sea of often absurd and pressure-filled unrealistic expectations. But the heavy emotional carnage did have snippets of humor mixed in, which kept me relatively sane and enthusiastic. The end result was being called a Doctor! Was all the stress and aggravation worth it? The jury is still out as to whether I would have done it all over again.

The Dentistry interview book is the number one selling dentistry book worldwide, providing an up-to-date review of the most common questions, with full answers and pointers on what the interviewers are looking for. Described as the 'essential guide', it is a vital resource as part of your preparation. Example question:Consider the case of nine year old Rebecca who comes in to surgery with her parents. This is her first dental visit. She has been kept awake with a painful tooth. Examination shows that she has several decayed teeth and that a lower right primary molar is causing the present pain. Rebecca is crying and climbing out of the dental chair. What is the best way to handle this situation.Clinically Rebecca's case draws on various themes. Without starting your undergraduate training you will not need to know about the clinical implications in detail. However, an understanding of the themes will make you stand out. A common answer is to indicate that some dentists may consider writing a brief referral letter to the local hospital for this tooth to be extracted with a general anaesthetic. The questions that you want to be thinking about clinically are:• Can this tooth be restored or does it need extraction?• What are the implications if I extract in the future (orthodontically can it have consequences)• Does the patient need General Anaesthetic or can this be managed within practice under Local Anaesthetic. • Rebecca has other dental needs as stated and has never attended a dentists before, how would I like to manage this to cause her the least upset?All of the above would require consideration of who would be consenting for the patient. In this case at 9 years old, the patient would require a parent or legal guardian to consent for her. 'Gillick Competence' allows for a child up to the age of eighteen to make their own decision regarding their care. However, the dentist must carefully assess that all the criteria for valid consent detailed in question four are present. There is particular emphasis placed on the patient's ability to understand and retain all the information given and communicate their reasoned decision. 'Gillick Competence' will be more relevant for scenarios where the child in question is slightly older. The ethical and legal responsibility to respect children as well as those who support them is essential in establishing strong professional relationships. In this particular situation explaining the options and offering choices will help the parents to make their decisions appropriately after understanding what's on offer, which in turn will increase the likelihood of co-operation, whichever option is finally decided upon.For Example:“The dentist should tell the family about the options and explain how the pain can be controlled with analgesics and a simple dressing. He /she should explain that it may be wise to slowly introduce Rebecca to dental care so that she becomes familiar with the dental environment before starting treatment. In this way he is enforcing the act of beneficence by acting in the patient's best interests and enabling the child's parents to make an informed decision- thereby enabling autonomy”Topics covered:GENERAL POINTS TO CONSIDER TRADITIONAL INTERVIEWS AND MMIS SCIENCE QUESTIONS ETHICAL QUESTIONS ABOUT THE UNIVERSITY PERSONAL QUALITIES ABOUT YOU WORK EXPERIENCE AND EDUCATION DENTAL & INDUSTRY DENTISTRY IN THE NHS CURRENT AFFAIRSWant to be tutored by the authors for your dentistry interview?

Your dental professional can surmise you have heart disease, stroke risk, osteoporosis, diabetes, or pre-diabetes just by ¿reading¿ the condition of your gums and the bone around your teeth. You may have heard that poor gum management leads to heart disease, but the damage goes far beyond that. Through chronic inflammatory processes, gum disease reflects and influences general health and aging in ways not imagined just a few years ago. MOUTH MATTERS is the first book that describes how your oral health affects your heart, blood vessels, lungs, bones, and kidneys. It reviews how gum disease can influence diabetes and pregnancy outcomes, or cause the rejection of artificial joints. It introduces oral cancer risks and jaw-joint/clenching problems. And of course it explains many people¿s biggest fear ¿ how teeth are lost without pain or any other noticeable symptoms until the end stages of the disease that leads to their loss. MOUTH MATTERS also tells you what you can do about it. If you want to live a long and vibrant life in our disease-ridden western society, you need to learn the vital strategies that control inflammation. The seeds for inflammation are sown decades before chronic inflammation expresses as disease. If you already suffer chronic inflammation, what you learn in these pages will help you douse the inflammatory fires. Educating yourself means you welcome the opportunity to take control of your health and the health of your family. Learn how to naturally strengthen your own body systems so you can resist disease, rather than create it!

A comprehensive guide to natural, do-it-yourself oral care, Holistic Dental Care introduces simple, at-home dental procedures that anyone can do. Highlighted with fifty-three full-color photos and illustrations, this book offers dental self-care strategies and practices that get to the core of the problems in our mouths--preventing issues from taking root and gently restoring dental health. Based on a "whole body approach" to oral care, Holistic Dental Care addresses the limits of the traditional approach that treats only the symptoms and not the source of body imbalances. Taking readers on a tour of the ecology of the mouth, dental health expert and author Nadine Artemis describes the physiology of the teeth and the sources of bacteria and decay. Revealing the truth about the artificial chemicals in many toothpastes and mouthwashes, Artemis also discusses the harmful effects of mercury fillings and the much safer ceramic filling options that are available. Covering topics that include healthy nutrition, oral care for children, and the benefits of botanical substances and plant extracts for maintaining oral health, Artemis introduces a comprehensive eight-step self-dentistry protocol that offers an effective way to prevent decay, illness, acidic saliva, plaque build-up, gum bleeding, inflammation, and more.

At a very special lecture some years ago, the concept of "thin places" was introduced to me. Thin poems describe people, places or experiences where boundaries between the spirit world and the secular or material world are more transparent. This transparency, or "thinness", enables a greater perception of spiritual matters, an encounter with God, a more spiritual approach to life. Thin places is a term that was given to sacred space, originally associated with Celtic Christians in the late Fifth Century. This book is organized into two thematic areas: Thin Places and Thin Experiences. Thin places can be found through travel, work, neighborhoods, nature and families. Thin experiences can be found through health, dreams, memories, spirituality and people. The title of the book comes from a self-label that evolved during a journey with cancer. The Author identifies himself with being a gentle warrior, one who strives for peace, harmony and balance. He hopes that readers will find these poems inspiring, comforting and useful.
