Preparing for Dental Practice

By (author): F. J. Trevor Burke, Ruth Freeman
The majority of dental students will choose general practice as their career path. This book prepares final year undergraduates for the difficult transition into primary care. It is essential that students understand how the different areas in primary care can be integrated. As a result, dental schools, usually in the final year of the course, are moving towards general practice by providing comprehensive patient care courses. This book provides a background to the holistic approach senior students are encouraged to use when identifying treatment needs, covering the integration of treatment and its planning, aspects of dental team building, practice selection and management matters.
Although this book is aimed primarily at undergraduates on the dental primary care courses, it will also prove invaluable to vocational trainees and those thinking about going into practice. The newly qualified dental practitioner will also find the text helpful, as there is no other title for them to consult which covers the range of material in this book.

Local Treatment of Inflammatory Joint Diseases: Benefits and Risks

This book presents a systematic survey of different local treatments in inflammatory joint diseases and their potential side effects and complications. Both surgical therapies and pharmaceutical strategies involving local or systemic application of anti-inflammatory and immunomodulating drugs are addressed. Special emphasis is placed on nuclear medicine therapy by intra-articular instillation of beta radiation emitters, known as radiosynoviorthesis or radiation synovectomy. Possible complications, in particular radionecrosis, infection, and thromboembolism, are described and available treatment strategies are examined in detail. In addition, radiation safety considerations are critically reviewed and relevant clinical questions are discussed.

While radiosynoviorthesis is an effective and safe treatment if a proper indication is secured and if the application is performed by an experienced nuclear medicine physician, local complications can never be excluded with certainty. This book will support physicians who are engaged in the care and treatment of patients with inflammatory joint disease, approximately 30,000 of whom undergo radiosynoviorthesis in Europe each year.
