Every working and instructing dental professional should readthis text concerning medically compromised patients. It updates, aswell as reviews, the important topics that are seen every day in private practice. Especially important is the areas of TB, HIV, and diabetes, although recent information may need to be added by the practioner (check out internet sites for these). Introductory tables are a must for reference in a clinical situation. I have used it a reference text in my clinical practice and in my continuing education courses.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most used textbook during my residencies! February 5, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was an invaluable book that I only glanced at a few times during dental school, but during both my hospital based-general practice residency and pediatric residency was my constant guide. It provides both medical and dental management for most encountered problems that patients present with and has lots of great quick reference tables!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for everyone, not anymore! January 31, 2008
A little bit out-of-date in the way body systems are reviewed in the Center (body) part of the book. Principally, the single section that I found valuable throughout my Dental school was the summary review of systems that is offered at the front of the book, which worked as a fast reference (basically, I tore that section off from the rest of the book!). Nevertheless, it might still work in a better way when it comes to being used by some residents in certain fields like that of surgery, GPR, AEGD, and so forth where they need to go over the boring center (body) of the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference for dental practitioners July 14, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This text has become the standard reference and source of definitive information for dental management of medically compromised patients. It serves as the textbook for Oral Medicine in many dental schools and offers practitioners valuable insight into care for acutely and chronically ill patients.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book - dont buy from Caymen March 5, 2009
This is a great text; however, amazon needs to be a bit more selective who they let sell things on this site. Caymen is aweful - sent me an empty box. I had to jump thru the hoops to get a refund and purchase the book elsewhere.

I had originally purchased this book for a dental hygiene class. I like how it takes you step-by-step through each medical emergency that you may encounter at a dental office.
