MacEntee, professor of Prosthodontics & Dental Geriatrics, as its senior editor—provides a broad and scholarly perspective on clinical issues such as oral pain, dry mouth and periodontal disease. It also thoroughly reviews pertinent social and ethical issues, access to care and the practicalities of providing high-quality oral health care to an aging population. Dr. Chris Wyatt, associate professor and chair of Prosthodontics & Dental Geriatrics, and Dr. Frauke Müller, professor and chair of Gerodontology and Removable Prosthodontics at the University of Geneva, Switzerland, are associate editors.



Oral And Maxillofacial Radiology - MacDonaldOral and Maxillofacial Radiology: A Diagnostic Approach provides clinicians of various disciplines and skill levels—including non-radiologist readers and senior students—a practical and systematic approach to diagnosing lesions that affect the face and jaw. Written by Dr. David MacDonald, associate professor and chair of the Division of Oral & Maxillofacial Radiology and a recognized expert in the field, the book contains a multitude of clinical images, practical examples and flowcharts to facilitate differential diagnosis. To reflect the scope of humanity, the book presents common and significant lesions within four broad ethnic groups, then focuses on appropriate imaging. Several chapters are co-written with a medical radiologist, Dr. Monty Martin, chief of Diagnostic Radiology, BC Cancer Agency, to bridge the gap between current textbooks in oral and maxillofacial radiology and those to do with the head and neck. The neck and base of the skull are locations where lesions are likely to be found.
