Evaluation, Diagnosis, and Treatment of Occlusal Problems (2nd Edition)

Reviewer: A reader

Dr. Dawson's text sets the standard for predictably understanding cause and effect relationship. Predictable, excellent dentistry requires a "global" view of cause and effect. For years, dentists have been taught to diagnose and treat symptoms. The majority of our teaching has been without respect to the temporomandibular joints. The TMJ's form a critical "pivotal" point for understanding occlusion, form and function. Dr. Dawson's work allows the reader to clearly understand WHY certain things occur. An understanding of the "why" allows the reader to move beyond simple repairative restorative dentistry --- to the point of being able to offer excellent, optimal long term stable dental care. Our patients are the final benefactors. Be prepared to read and reread, as this text does not flow like a best-selling novel. Instead, work one chapter at a time, as you uncover the mystery of form and function. Dr. Tom Orent 1000 Gems Seminars
