The Dentistry Essentials are an international series of textbooks, designed to support lecture series or themes on core topics within dentistry.

A comprehensive guide to providing effective dental treatment and care to patients affected by diseases

Essentials of Human Disease in Dentistry, Second Edition takes an integrated approach to dentistry and how it relates to general medicine, surgery, pharmacology, therapeutics, pathology and microbiology. Building on the success of the Textbook of Human Disease in Dentistry, this new edition has been updated with a new layout, featuring key topics, learning objectives, and practical clinical advice in each chapter.

This accessible guide is structured around the systems of the body and covers all major diseases and conditions with their aetiology, symptoms, and treatments. The focus is on the relevance of particular diseases and their drug treatment in relation to dentistry and patient dental management.

This vital resource:

  • Promotes a better understanding of how to provide effective dental treatment to patients affected by diseases
  • Presents illustrative examples and helpful clinical photographs throughout
  • Includes a new chapter on the importance of understanding shock
  • Features self–assessment questions at the end of each chapter, and a companion website hosting downloadable images from the book

Essentials of Human Disease in Dentistry, Second Edition is an invaluable resource for undergraduate dentistry students as well as newly qualified dentists preparing for the MFDS exam.
