1 Review

This is an invaluable book for practitioners and students alike. It is written by a wide range of distinguished contributors who have expertise in all aspects of dental practice. Readable and authoritative, subjects range from confidentiality, consent, mental disabilities and negligence, and the practical aspects of managing complaints and claims. Where differences occur, as in Scotland, these are fully explained. Developments in revalidation and continuing professional education make this a timely publication which should be readily available to every dentist and dental student. It provides clear and comprehensive guidance on key legal and ethical issues, and emphasises the standards which are now expected by patients and the profession.
