L’Harmattan, 2019

"L'Ordre des chirurgiens-dentistes a été créé par le général de Gaulle en 1945. Il y a bien eu une section dentaire du Conseil national de l'Ordre des médecins fondée par le maréchal Pétain et le gouvernement de Vichy alors que la France est occupée par les Allemands. Si on doit à la section dentaire le code de déontologie et l'entraide confraternelle aux victimes et prisonniers de guerre, sa mission première a été d'éradiquer les juifs de la profession dentaire. Cette structure sera annulée après la guerre par le général de Gaulle lui-même sur décret. Les deux institutions restent différentes par leurs actions et leurs missions respectives, même si on ne peut oublier les enseignements de l'histoire qui doivent participer au devoir de mémoire et servir comme garant d'une institution ordinale contemporaine."

To maintain your life is not only to be living successfully but also to be successful at living. In dentistry, we need to take the lead in our involvement in dental insurance, or in our practices as it relates to our patients and our staffs, and the lead on how we manage ourselves to maintain that leadership and maintain our life. Being mindful of proper communication and leadership skills create a true balance for the successful dentist leader.

Currently, clinical orthodontics in transitioning from the two-dimensional (2D) world to the three-dimensional (3D) world. The use of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) has changed from a rather myopic view that the use of 3D CBCTs could be unethical to a far broader acceptance." From preface

Root caries: from prevalence to therapy / by M.R.O. Carrilho
Karger, 2017

"Case reports and clinical trials conducted in various countries show, more and more frequently, a positive correlation between the presence of original teeth and prevalence of root caries in older age. Bacause this is a global trend, it is likely that the predicted increase in the worldwide elderly population may soon cause a significant increase in the number of people requiring effective means of preventing and treating root surface caries. In response to this development, a team of outstanding contributors has reviewed the most important aspects of root caries. this new volume presents their findings along with discussion of how to deal with this health issue that progressively affects the oral health balance."

"Although the field of sports dentistry is ever changing, the primary objectives of this book remain the same: to inform dental and medical practitioners how to deal with orofacial trauma, both in the field of play and within the surgery environment; to introduce the concept of dental screening, particularly during pre‐season assessments; to prevent dental trauma of both an acute and chronic nature, acute being direct trauma to hard and soft tissues, chronic being tooth surface loss as a result of erosion; and to investigate the role nutrition plays in elite and amateur athletes, with a view to reducing the need for them to require reparative restorative dentistry in the long term".

"[This e-book] has been organized with an initial brief review of the normal dento‐facial structure, progressing to discussions on dental and oral anomalies, and then finally considering the more frequent syndromes associated with tooth disturbances. We hope this will give the reader a better understanding of anomalies, along with an appreciation of how clinical presentations can differ during the long course of development of the teeth and jaws".

"The book is designed to provide clinical cases relating to dental hygiene practice. Included with each case are problem‐based learning objectives followed by self‐study questions and take‐home hints that are elaborated answers of the self‐study questions. This book will bring together what the dental hygiene student learned in school in a case‐based format that stimulates independent thinking. This book covers all essential concepts within the scope of dental hygiene practice. Clinical Cases in Dental Hygiene can be used as a textbook to prepare for the written boards and also as a reference book in dental hygiene practice. Group activities can focus on discussing the major points raised in the study questions or self‐directed study on the major topics. The dental hygiene diagnosis and care plan are the focus of many of the cases to help guide the reader to the planned interventions and expected outcomes". From preface.

"The textbook takes the reader through every clinical scenario, from the fully edentulous to partially edentulous, including the patient missing a single tooth. The chapters clearly delineate the different thought processes the clinician must go through when treating the functional (posterior) zone versus the esthetic (anterior) zone. The chapters are very well illustrated with the authors’ documented cases, highlighting the concepts and biologic principles that the surgical and restorative team must consider. There is equal focus on the restorative and surgical aspects of implant dentistry and procedures for both specialties are thoroughly covered with systematic reviews followed by a measurement of strength and level of certainty for the treatment recommendations". From preface.
