Developmental dentistry is a difficult medical speciality. It requires not only extensive dental and general medical knowledge, but also the ability to approach the young patient in the right psychological way, taking into account their developmental stages and the attitudes and behaviour of their parents or carers. The authors of the “Compendium of Paediatric Dentistry” have attempted to write an academic textbook that meets and fulfils the requirements and standards of contemporary practice in the development and
preparation of this type of modern teaching aid.
The scope of the textbook covers the oral health problems of developmental age patients, taking into account the variety of aspects and specificities of dental care for the young patient. The authors’ aim was to present all stages of a child’s treatment, starting with the first visit to the dental office, through diagnosis and clinical diagnosis and treatment procedures.
