Dentist on the Ward is a ‘must have’ for any dentist starting as a core trainee in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.
The book gives clear practical advice on everything that should be expected from the training experience and practical guidance in key areas a new core dental trainee might be expected be acquainted with.
As well as instruction in simple measures, such as when and how to take blood samples, there are chapters devoted to the understanding of more complex procedures and conditions that will be encountered by a junior Oral and Maxillofacial trainee.
The book is written by two Consultant Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons with decades of experience in supervising and teaching young dentists working in their departments. It is unique in providing simple guidance specifically for dentally qualified trainees and concentrates on practice, procedures and theory, which is important, while omitting less relevant detailed knowledge which can be found in medical textbooks.
