Wolters Kluwer Health, a leading global provider of information for healthcare professionals and students, announced today that Lexicomp has released the 1st edition of the Manual of Pediatric Dentistry, a new print title and electronic database for all dental professionals covering the diagnosis and treatment of the most frequent conditions occurring within pediatric dentistry.
Lexicomp is the industry leader in delivering dental-specific drug information, drug interaction and clinical content for use at the point-of-care. With the recent growth in pediatric dentistry, Lexicomp’s Manual of Pediatric Dentistry is the first of its kind reference that general dentists have been searching for to competently and conscientiously treat children. Designed for both reference and immediate feedback of clinical information, diagnosis, and treatment protocols, the reference includes 14 chapters, 6 additional sub topics, and 180 photographs and images, making it the ideal chair-side photographic reference for the most common pediatric dental issues.
In addition to the new 157-page printed manual, this highly anticipated pediatric content is accessible in Lexicomp’s Web-based product, Lexicomp Online for Dentistry, as well as on mobile devices. Topic areas include: sample prescriptions for antibiotics, fluoride and pain control including dosing and instructions for each age group; traumatic injuries to the teeth and jaws; preoperative sedation routines and administration; most likely emergencies in a pediatric setting; eruption charts; and developmental tables.
“Our market research has shown that over 70% of dentists treat pediatric patients either daily or weekly, and they often have questions about treatment protocols,” said Steven Kerscher, Vice President and General Manager, Lexicomp. “We worked with industry experts to compile this valuable content, written by dentists for dentists, to serve the sensitive treatment needs of the pediatric population. We are excited to offer this unique title to the dental community,” added Kerscher.
