Implants in the Esthetic Zone: A Step-By-Step Treatment Strategy / By Ueli Grunder
Quintessence Publishing, 2016.

"Written by a highly respected and innovative surgeon, this book presents an unconventional implant treatment strategy for the esthetic restoration of anterior teeth that has proven effective over years of clinical experience. In addition to reviewing biologic principles, treatment planning, indications, esthetic analysis, and prosthetic options, the author focuses on factors such as gentle tooth extraction, precise implant positioning, criteria for one- and two-stage implant placement, and most importantly, a wide range of soft tissue management techniques in his approach.

This book also presents techniques to improve the esthetic outcome of any dental implant therapy, regardless of treatment strategy. With more than 4,000 clinical images and illustrations of all procedures and techniques discussed, this tour de-force by a leader in implant dentistry raises the reader's awareness of the high demands of implant dentistry and how clinicians can achieve optimal results."

Quintessence Publishing, 2015.

"Since the concept of osseointegration was introduced to the dental community more than 35 years ago by Professor P-I Brånemark, significant improvements have been achieved in patient evaluation, methods used to enhance the bone and soft tissues of potential implant sites, and surgical techniques to prepare the osteotomy sites and place the implants. These topics are thoroughly discussed from the perspective that an interdisciplinary approach will yield the most predictable outcomes for treatment of the dental implant patient. The authors address the sometimes controversial topic of immediate loading and provide useful insights regarding when this approach can achieve predictable outcomes and when it is to be avoided. The use of CAD/CAM technologies is emphasized throughout the text, and the latest developments and their use in this rapidly expanding arena are fully described."

"Managing a Dental Practice the Genghis Khan Way shows you how to turn your practice into a successful business. Being an effective practice manager demands a clear vision, sufficient business knowledge and, above all, wise judgement.

Never intended to be a theoretical book, this is a "warts-and-all" guide to managing a dental practice, written by someone who’s been there, made mistakes and survived. It will show you the importance of teamwork and communication, staying close to your patients and prudent financial management.

So why Genghis Khan? Well, Genghis Khan was a charismatic leader in the late twelfth and early thirteenth centuries who created one of the world's greatest empires. His hugely successful strategies included intelligence gathering, being quick to learn and adopt new technologies and successful people management. Whichever way you look at it, you will need all of Genghis Khan’s skill, strength and tenacity to be a successful dentist and business owner.

This revised edition has been thoroughly updated and adds a section on buying and setting up a practice as well as much more about managing patients and employees. You will find information on leadership, team building and working with other clinicians. The Policies and Procedures section now includes a new chapter on how to manage the Care Quality Commission."
