Dr. Fahad Alqahtani marks his debut in the self-publishing stage with the release of “Operative Dentistry in the Phantom Lab” (published by Partridge Singapore). Through simulation, the book trains dental students to improve their chances of being successful when working on real patients.

“Before they work on real patients, it is important for dental students to practice treatments on phantom lab heads and ivory teeth,” Alqahtani says. “While dental simulators are available for specific areas, such as restorative dentistry and prosthetics, they are not available in all dental colleges because of the high expense.”

“Operative Dentistry in the Phantom Lab” simulate operative dental cases for dental students and their supervisors in a phantom lab. The book includes more than 800 high-resolution images, illustrations and tables. Tools and instruments are explained as well as the common terms used in operative dentistry.

Simulating systems for caries lesions and their corresponding restorative treatments are shown in the phantom lab. Radiographic images and clinical photos are included to help students make the correct caries lesions diagnosis.

From easy procedures, such as practical step-by-step rubber dam techniques to retainer application, and teeth preparation and correspondent restorations with amalgam or composite restoration, the book is an important resource for prospective dentists and those new to the field.
