Manual of Clinical Procedures in Dentistry: King's Dental academics collaborate to produce definitive guide on the core procedures in dentistry

The Manual of Clinical Procedures in Dentistry comprehensively explains the core procedures in dentistry, how to do them, and the rationale that underpins them. Full of useful and easy to access information, it acts as a compendium of practical procedures in primary dental care, supporting students and dental practitioners in their daily professional and academic lives.

Edited by former Dean and Head of King’s College London’s Dental Institute, Emeritus Professor Nairn Wilson, and King’s Specialist in Restorative Dentistry, Professor Stephen Dunne, the publication is a definitive manual covering everything you need to know about the core procedures in dentistry.  

With contributions from a vast number of academics at King’s College London’s Dental Institute, the Manual of Clinical Procedures in Dentistry is an invaluable text for dental students and new graduates, as well as a definitive guide for the whole dental team.
