This highly successful series has been specially designed to explore readers’ knowledge through an effective process of understanding, learning and self-assessment. This approach allows students to identify their strengths, weaknesses and knowledge gaps and take rapid steps to correct any shortfalls and strengthen core knowledge.
Each chapter begins with an overview of the subject area while brief ‘Learning Objectives’ are listed at the start of each subsection. Lists are used to set out frameworks and to help the reader put facts into a rational sequence. Tables are used to link quite complex and detailed information whilst techniques used in various procedures are cited in boxes.
To ensure that the reader is meeting the required standard, the final section of each chapter enables a check on knowledge or understanding. Questions are designed to integrate knowledge from across different chapters and to focus on the decisions the student will have to make in a clinical situation.
This third edition of Master Dentistry addresses the restorative, paediatric and orthodontic aspects of dentistry and is particularly suitable for undergraduate students, vocational trainees and those preparing for post-graduate examinations such as the MJDF in the UK or international equivalent, and the ORE.
