This book has been designed to help dentists to establish and maintain information systems that are necessary for effective working. It will consider the context of dentists in the UK, USA and Canada. It tries to do at least six (almost!) impossible things: 1. Talk about information in an interesting way. 2. Show how information can actually be useful. 3. Explain how to get you to love your computer. 4. Make SNODENT Codes interesting. 5. Help practices to share meaningful information. 6. Make you smile while reading a book about information. It includes references to incredibly unhip comedy series such as 'The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy' (such as why not round off this chapter by breakfast at Milliways, the Restaurant at the End of the Universe?). The book assumes that you the reader are based in, or work with, a dental practice. Each chapter includes exercises that generally require you to have access to a dental practice.

Traditionally dentists are independent contractors who choose where to locate their premises and how much NHS dentistry to provide. Over the past 10 years there has been an increase in the number of patients experiencing difficulties in accessing NHS dentistry and during this time there has also been pressure to reform the dental remuneration system. In 2003 major changes were announced in which Primary Care Trusts were to be given responsibility for commissioning NHS dental services and a deadline of October 2005 was set for implementing new contracts. This report looks at how the risks of the service are being managed including the mismatch between supply and demand, the ability of Primary Care Trusts to commission services and variations in oral health.

This book provides essential knowledge for creating treatment plans for adult dental patients. Treatment planning strategies are presented to help with balancing the ideal with the practical, with emphasis placed on the central role of the patient — whose needs should drive the treatment planning process.

In Clinical Practice boxes highlight specific clinical situations faced by the general dentist.
