Dental services in the United States : analysis, cost and trends / edited by Y.A. Rosseau
Nova Science Publishers, Inc., 2013

"This book examines dental services in the United States with a focus on (1) trends in coverage for, and use of, dental services; (2) trends in payments by individuals and other payers for dental services; and (3) the extent to which dental fees vary between and within selected communities across the nation. To do this work, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) examined the office of Health and Human Services (HHS) national health survey data and national dental expenditure estimates, dental insurance claims data, and health center dental fees in 18 selected communities (based on census region, population, and dental claims volume)."

Atlas of complications and failures in implant dentistry : guidelines for a therapeutic approach / by L. Galasso and G.A. Favero
Quintessenza Edizioni S.r.l., 2013

"This book fills a need that is completely different from those of traditional texts that set out to summarize or describe success rates for successful osseointegration in oral rehabilitation. It is based on a more naturally rational approach, that of describing and detailing errors and failures with the aim of preventing or minimizing the impact of new procedures on the human body. Despite the fact that long-term clinical studies demonstrate the reliability and predictability of treatment in edentulous patients, there remains a great need for prophylactic measures to continue to reduce margins of error and their consequences [...] The author's aim of reducing the clinical incidence of avoidable errors represents an opportunity to optimize treatment outcomes and reduce the number of complications in the short and long term." Taken from Foreword, iv

Little and Falace's Dental management of the medically compromised patient, 8th edition / by J.W. Little et al.
Elsevier, 2013

"The purpose of this book remains to give the dental provider an up-to-date, concise, factual reference work describing the dental management of patients with selected medical problems. The more common medical disorders that may be encountered in a dental practice continue to be the focus. This book is not a comprehensive medical reference, but rather a book containing enough core information about each of the medical conditions covered to enable the reader to recognize the basis for various dental management recommendations. Medical problems are organized to provide a brief overview of the basic disease process, epidemiology, pathophysiology, signs and symptoms, laboratory findings, and currently accepted medical therapy of each disorder. This is followed by a detailed explanation and recommendations for specific dental management." Taken from Preface, ix
