The ADA Practical Guide to Patients with Medical Conditions is designed to assist in the safe delivery of coordinated oral health care for patients with medical conditions. Many diseases, as well as some medical treatments, have oral manifestations that may reflect the patient’s general health status. The dentist is particularly qualified and trained to diagnose and make evidence-based treatment decisions to help manage these oral conditions.
Based on practical advice anchored in the best available evidence, this clinical resource takes a system-based approach. Within each chapter, individual conditions are discussed under three major sections: background, medical management, and dental management. Other sections include description of diseases, pathogenesis, coordination of care between the dentist and patient, and key questions to ask the patient and physician. The Practical Guide offers vital information in a user-friendly format, featuring clinical images, summary tables, key questions, and quick reference guides to key dental care issues. Written by more than 25 academicians and clinicians who are experts in the content areas, this book takes a patient-focused approach in collaboration with the patient’s physician and other healthcare providers and is a must have for all dentists.
