This fourth edition (2014), retains one of the previous editors (K Gulabivala), Chris Stock and Dick Walker having taken a well-earned retirement from their illustrious careers, and includes a new co-editor, Yuan-Ling (Paula) Ng. The latter, a long-serving clinician and teacher, has been instrumental in helping to advance the clinical evidence-base for endodontics through research, as well as being the programme director for the endodontic masters programmes at the Eastman Dental Institute. This latest book will continue the tradition established in previous editions. It updates and enhances its evidence-based and rationalized clinical approach, whilst upholding the richly illustrated perspective, to serve the visually-dependent learning framework of many aspiring endodontists. The book is significantly re-organized into four sections: section 1, establishing the scientific and clinical rationale; section 2, prepares the reader for the pre-requisites of treatment; section 3, describes the core treatment details; and section 4, discusses the interfaces between disciplines, as the growth of specialisms has altered the dynamics between clinicians who have developed higher skills and knowledge in defined areas. The approach also demanded the incorporation of new material and chapters to ensure a comprehensive coverage of subject matter.
The endodontic service needs of the UK population is currently deemed to be best met by three levels of expertise: the general dental practitioner serving the core needs; the dental practitioner with enhanced endodontic skills to manage the moderately complex cases; and finally, the specialist tier serving the needs of patients with more complex problems. It is hoped that this book will serve practitioners at different levels of service delivery: (1) inspire the advanced undergraduate dental student about to enter practice; (2) help the general dental practitioner to consolidate their knowledge and skills after graduation; (3) form the basis of advancement for the practitioner with enhanced skills; and (4) lay the preliminary foundation for the aspiring specialist. Whilst the evolution of this book is described in the context of the UK healthcare system, various streams of evidence (endodontic journals, epidemiological data, international conferences and global perspectives of health sciences) suggest that the same process of evolution is endemic across the globe, making the text relevant wherever endodontic practice prevails.
