This book discusses in detail systemic diseases that can complicate dental care or treatment. There are three basic problems regarding the dental treatment of patients with significant systemic disease: detecting such patients; determining what implications the disease or its treatment have for dental management; and deciding how best to deal with the problem. The book covers the background information about systemic diseases and their management, the relevance of these diseases and their treatment for dentistry and suggestions as to how these problems should be dealt with.

"Do I need this book, or one of similar quality? There is no doubt; it is an item that I would want available in any multiple-surgery practice I worked in, for all of the staff, for reference, and for quickly resolving differences of opinion. However, I would encourage home reading, too; you will be surprised what updates you need and what grabs your attention."
