Product Description:
 

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." Reviewed by Dr Mike Pemberton, Consultant in Oral Medicine, Dental Updatem, Sept 2014

"...an extremely valuable source of information that should be in the armamentarium of any dental professional..." Reviewed by European Journal of Orthodontics, Feb 2015

"... seems as close as could be to a completely comprehensive overview of common and uncommon medical problems and their dental relevance". Reviewed by Bex Stockton on behalf of BDJ Student, February 2015
