Review from previous edition This handbook was an absolute lifesaver. As a maxillofacial senior house officer - you are completely out of your depth and this is perfect to carry around with you! It has a clear and concise structure and you are able to find what you are looking for even if you are rushed of your feet. There a is a logical approach to anything that you will come across in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery - from working in Accident &
Emergency and dealing with the different injuries, to the ward and clerking the patients. It will serve as your best friend and will allow you to get the best clinical experience that you can from your time in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. There is no other book that will serve this purpose! * Amazon *
As one of the dominant specialties in the face, head and neck there is virtually no exposure to oral and maxillofacial surgery (OMFS) in the undergraduate medical curriculum. The Oxford Handbook of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery fills this gap perfectly and distills the essentials of what is required of a junior doctor in OMFS. * Amazon *
For specialty trainees within OMFS the book would be an excellent companion * Anonymous *
