Scully's Medical Problems in Dentistry

This text offers an authoritative account of general medical and surgical conditions as they apply to the practice of dentistry and oral healthcare. Now established as the standard reference on the subject, Scully’s Medical Problems in Dentistry is essential for students learning for the first time or practitioners needing to keep up-to-date with their knowledge.

"This remains an excellent comprehensive textbook bringing together relevant information into one place. It is a book to use for reference, rather than an end-to-end read, but it continues to fulfil its function amply in the increasingly complex world of the medical-dental interface." Dr Mike Pemberton, Consultant in Oral Medicine, Dental Updatem, Sept 2014

Undergraduate dental students, general dental practitioners, hospital-based dentists and candidates for postgraduate dental exams
