This book provides essential knowledge for creating treatment plans for adult dental patients. Treatment planning strategies are presented to help with balancing the ideal with the practical, with emphasis placed on the central role of the patient — whose needs should drive the treatment planning process.

CD-ROM bound into book presents five cases of varying difficulty with interactive exercises that allow users to plan treatment. What's the Evidence? boxes link clinical decision-making and treatment planning strategies to current research. In Clinical Practice boxes highlight specific clinical situations faced by the general dentist.

Now, more than ever, Family Medicine is alive and well in the United States. The base of this medical specialty has traditionally been in the smaller cities, suburban communities, and rural areas of this country. Over the past decade, however, there has been a resurgence of interest in primary care in our major metropolitan areas as a solution to the high tech subspecialty pace of the tertiary care environment. A rebirth of urban family medicine has accompanied these pioneering efforts. To date, the accomplishments are substantial and the prospects are bright. There is still a long way to go and there are a significant number of hurdles to cross. Although diseases are generally the same wherever you are, their effects as illness on the individual and the family are strongly influenced by the environment and social milieu. Urban families have distinctive and diverse problems-cultural, economic, and ethnic. Training pro grams situated in the large cities must recognize these issues and include special emphasis on the situations that the family physician is likely to encounter during and after his training. There is very little research literature on the background and nature of special urban problems and these areas are the subject of several chapters of this long overdue volume devoted specifically to urban family medicine. Dr. Birrer has persuaded true experts to share their knowledge with the reader.

Patients present to physicians with headache or facial pain and are certain that it is a “sinus headache. Specialists of all types - otolaryngologists, allergists, neurologists, internists, and emergency physicians are confronted almost daily with these patients. “Headache in Otolaryngology: Rhinogenic and Beyond describes headaches ascribed to other causes - migraine as well as headaches that actually are a result of sinusitis. This volume addresses the need for expertise of an otolaryngologist who can obtain a history of nasal and sinus disease, evaluate the interior of the nose, and correlate it to a computed tomographic (CT) scan, along with collaboration of neurologists/headache specialists. Because headaches are often a symptom of potentially dangerous medical conditions that may need emergency work-up and referral to the appropriate physician, information in this volume identifies these emergency conditions for the clinician. Topics include: Confusion about sinus headache; Diagnosing Adult and Pediatric Headache; Imaging for the headache patient; TMJ head pain; Signs of dangerous headache; Vertiginous headache; Rhinogenic headache; Medical treatment of headache; and Surgery for headache.
