UNITED KINGDOM – “A textbook for dentistry, but written from a human point of view, not about cases or patients, but about real people,” says John Laszlo when asked what makes his book different from other like it. In his debut publication titled “Clinical Problems in Dentistry,” it prepares candidates for the topics that will be covered in upcoming MFDS and MJDF examinations evidence-based knowledge. With clear, concise questions and to-the-point explanations and rationales, this book is a comprehensive guide packed with the most up-to-date information readers need to get ready for the test.

According to Laszlo, his book takes a very strong lead from the report of Robert Francis QC and the new General Dental Council Guidelines were published in 2013 and from the reports and recommendations for health care workers in the U.K. As this is the first textbook and so far the only dental text book to do so, this text book is of prime importance for candidates for the MFDS and MJDF exams.

“Clinical Problems in Dentistry” gives both an understanding and an approach to pass the two examinations postgraduate dentists take when completing their foundation grade training. Detailed cases from real patients will enable the postgraduate dentist to gain an appreciation of the standards required and the professional behaviours expected from a successful candidate. Building the basic OSCE into the SCR, this is the only book aimed at both the MFDS and MJDF exams. Starting with Exam Expectations, the following five chapters of subject-based questions cover: Medical Emergencies, Medical Matters, Ethical Examples, Clinical Cases and ends with Procedural Problems.

With an emphasis on humanity and the non-technical skills a dentist needs to be able to demonstrate not only to pass the exams, but to work successfully as a dentist in the U.K., “Clinical Problems in Dentistry” should prove to be useful not only for those preparing for the MFDS and MJDF exams, but for all members of the dental team.
