Description

This is a second edition of a hugely successful practical resource in orthodontics and paediatric dentistry – ideal for undergraduate dental students and post-graduates preparing for the MJDF and similar exams.

Key Features

  • Focuses on clinical problem-solving in orthodontics and paediatric dentistry — two closely-related topics that are usually separated into different volumes.
  • Provides practical help with treatment planning, guiding the reader through the process of safe and effective decision-making.
  • Provides two different approaches to the clinical cases — some topics include scenarios with questions and answers; others include differential diagnosis with a focus on how to plan and manage treatment effectively.
  • Uses ‘key-point" Evidence-Based’ boxes systematically to emphasise core knowledge for assessment and provide a rationale for treatment approaches.
  • Contains valuable ‘mind-maps’, which helps the reader consolidate information prior to exams.
