Interesting new e-books on orthodontics, dental nursing, and patients with developmental disorders

Clinical cases in orthodontics / Martyn T. Cobourne (et al.) Chichester, West Sussex: Wiley-Blackwell, 2012.

This book applies both theory and practice to real-life orthodontic cases in a clinically relevant format. This unique approach supports the new trend in case-based and problem-based learning, thoroughly covering topics ranging from Class I malocclusions to orthognathic surgery.

Questions and Answers for Dental Nurses / Carole Hollins 3rd ed., Chichester, West Sussex: Wiley-Blackwell, 2012.

This 3rd edition includes both standard Multiple Choice Questions and the new style Extended Matching Questions with helpful explanatory information on responses. As a self-assessment tool this revision guide is a must-have for all trainee dental nurses for independent revision and preparing for examinations.

Treating the dental patient with a developmental disorder / Karen A. Raposa (ed). Ames, Iowa: Wiley-Blackwell, 2012.

The book opens with an overview of the major types of developmental disabilities-autism spectrum disorders, Down Syndrome, attention deficit, cerebral palsy-and others such as spina bifida and learning difficulties. Following chapters also discuss how to gather personal information, medical histories, dental experiences, and oral habits; determine family dynamics; and understand how to communicate with patients and model desired patient behavior.
