New Books - August 2016


Sociology and psychology for the dental team : an introduction to key topics / by S. Scrambler, K. Asimakopoulou, and S. Scott
Polity, 2016
Stacks RK53 .S33 2016X

"The role that the social and behavioural sciences play in the daily practice of dentistry is now an essential part of all dentistry training, but it can often seem distant from the reality of daily clinical practice. Dentists often ask: what is sociology? Why do I need to know about psychology? Why do I need sociology and psychology to be an effective dentist? How can they help improve my clinical practice?

This new textbook answers these important questions and shows how the social and behavioural sciences can inform the practice of dentistry and allied healthcare services in the twenty-first century. It provides a comprehensive, accessible introduction to sociology and psychology for students and members of the dental team with no prior knowledge of the subject, and although the book assumes little or no previous knowledge of psychology or sociology, it also provides enough depth to meet the needs of those with some background in these fields. Throughout, the links between sociology and psychology and everyday practice are emphasized and explained and theoretical concepts are put into the context of everyday clinical work. 

The authors have extensive experience in teaching and researching the social and behavioural sciences from undergraduate to post-doctoral levels. This book will be an indispensable teaching aid within dental health education, and other allied health and social care disciplines." Taken from back cover

Stacks RK651 .H64 2016X

"Written for the dental technician, this comprehensive textbook describes the philosophy behind prosthodontic design and systematically details all of the working steps in designing and fabricating restorations and dentures. Unlike other prosthodontic texts, this one is written from a design perspective first and foremost, explaining the rationale behind the most minute of design considerations, such as different extension arms in removable partial denture clasps. Entire chapters are devoted to supporting elements of restorations, such as attachments, anchors, and clasps, and the statics of partial dentures, underscoring the book’s emphasis on stability during function and how to make wise design choices to achieve it. The book does not stop at design, however, it includes comprehensive instructions on fabrication as well, clearly delineating the responsibilities of the dental technician and the dentists. A chapter on complete dentures includes multiple working methods and philosophies from prosthodontic pioneers, and the final chapter describes how to incorporate sound prosthodontics design into implant therapy. This book will surely change the way dental technicians approach prosthodontic design." Taken from publisher website

Global diagnosis : a new vision of dental diagnosis and treatment planning / by J.W. Robbins and J.S. Rouse
Quintessence Publishing Co, Inc., 2016
Stacks RK501 .R63 2016X

The "global diagnosis system is based on five CORE questions:

  1. What are the facial proportions and skeletal relationships?
  2. What are the length and mobility of the upper lip?
  3. What is the relationship between the gingival line and the horizon?
  4. What is the length of the maxillary central incisor?
  5. Is the CEJ palpable in the gingival sulcus?
This book outlines how to use these questions to determine a diagnosis and includes chapters on the treatment options available for various diagnoses, including crown lengthening, tissue grafting, intrusion, forced eruption, orthognathic surgery, facial plastics, and extrusion. Chapter 12 describes our CORE template, which is included on the attached CD, and how to use thirteen photographs to complete the template. This template can be used for presentations for dental study clubs as well as to keep track of pertinent information. In the final chapter, we invite readers to plan the treatment for five case studies based on the CORE questions and other diagnostic information." Taken from Preface, viii
