Risk Assessment and Oral Diagnostics in Clinical Dentistry

  • Published: January 2013

Many diseases can have an impact upon oral health and/or the safe delivery of dental care. Consequently, oral health care providers need to be comfortable with assessing the risk of providing dental care to their patients with systemic disease as well as the evaluation of oral conditions that may represent manifestations or consequences of systemic disease. Risk Assessment and Oral Diagnostics in Clinical Dentistry aims to enable the dental practitioner to comfortably and capably assess when medical conditions may impact dental care and diagnose oral conditions using routine testing modalities.

This clinical guide contains succinct and detailed text with visual aids regarding how to obtain and perform diagnostic tests, how to interpret these tests, and the implications of tests results upon the management of medically complex dental patients and patients with oral conditions. Color photographs show conditions, testing equipment, and test results. An appendix highlights the ten most common oral medicine disorders encountered in dental practice.

“This book provides generalists at any level a good overview of common oral diseases. Importantly, it provides a useful metric to approaching medically compromised individuals. There are a few other books that may provide a more in-depth review of oral medicine and management of the medically complex patient in dentistry, such as Oral Medicine and Medically Complex Patients, 6th edition, Lockhart (Wiley-Blackwell, 2013), which treats the topic in more depth.”  (Doody’s, 3 January 2014)
