6 OCTOBER 2010 Prices do not include gst and may be subject to change Oral and Maxillofacial Diseases – 4th edition Professor Crispian Scully, University College, London 9780415414944 • 448 pages • Hardcover $485 ex gst This atlas of oral and maxillofacial pathology differs from others by the inclusion of clinical detail on diseases of the oral mucosa, gingivae, teeth, salivary glands, jaw bones and joints, and of a wide range of the more obvious extraoral manifestations. It is intended primarily as a pictorial diagnostic aid for dental professionals, surgeons and physicians, with text that provides a concise synopsis of stomatology. Previous editions over the past 20 years have been extremely successful. The atlas has become increasingly popular because of the wide coverage of oral and maxillofacial diseases and the depth of information contained. This fourth edition provides one of the most comprehensively illustrated coverages of oral and maxillofacial diseases worldwide. The atlas has been revised, updated and reorganised, with new conditions included. It includes improved examples of many conditions, particularly additional examples of common conditions or where clinical diagnosis can be difficult because of varied presentations.

The material is being reviewed by the ADA’s Schedule and Third Party Committee and it will shortly make recommendations to ADA on the correspondence.

At this stage the ADA is advising members to either obtain their own legal advice as to the ramifications of entering into the proposed arrangement or to await advice from ADA on the matter. ADA maintains its recommendation to members to seriously consider if they wish to join schemes such as this and by doing so become bound by conditions that may potentially influence or impact on their independence and quality of care delivery.
