Dr Joao Ferreira from the Faculty of Dentistry, NUS has co-edited a new book, Orofacial Disorders. The book includes articles from several Faculty members (A/P Catherine Hong, Dr Tan Hee Hon and Dr Chelsea Sim) and provides evidence-based guidance on evaluation, diagnosis and management of orofacial disorders. It introduces the most recent technological advances in this subject and explains how to integrate the various disorders into routine dental practice. Despite being a book written by world-class experts, it focuses on the level of understanding of a clinician. It is indeed a must-read for practising clinicians, and for those who want a deeper insight into the subject.
The book is due for release in April 2017 and can be pre-ordered online from Springer
