A Better Way
The surprising path to a complete life
Peter E. Dawson, Gregg Lewis
For nearly 60 years dentists from around the world have traveled to St. Petersburg, Florida to attend Peter Dawson’s seminars on “The Concept of Complete Dentistry.™” He’s personally taught more than 50,000 of those practitioners. In the process he literally redefined dentistry and its standard of care by challenging his professional peers to raise their sites beyond “usual and customary” practices, to become true physicians of the masticatory system. Yet why would anyone decide to read a book about a dentist, no matter how accomplished? Perhaps, because Pete Dawson is more than a dentist. A plethora of achievements plus a wealth of unusual life experiences have provided him great insight and wisdom. Yet this is not an advice book. It’s an inspiring story of persistence—from a man who overcame hardship, professional ridicule and injustice, and who, at the age of 88, still speaks and lectures to thousands of dentists a year.

The Complete Dentist Manual
The Essential Guide to Being a Complete Care Dentist
Peter E Dawson, John C. Cranham
Complete Dentistry vs. "Usual and customary" Most dentists typically do not know what they do not know; so they go on practicing “usual and customary” dentistry without ever knowing how good their practices could be. This text is a politically incorrect “tell it like it is” exposure of why so many practices fall short of the satisfaction and rewards that predictably successful dentistry provides. A true clinicians manual, every chapter is based on long-term observation of thousands of patients using objective criteria for “complete” examinations, comprehensive treatment planning, patient communication and successful practice management for exceptional patient care. The contribution of practicing faculty members with experience in teaching thousands of dentists, laboratory technicians and staff members, makes the text an easily understood venue for fulfilling the stated goal of The Dawson Academy for Advanced Dental Study: We love to make good dentists even better.

The concluding chapters cover oral pathology, forensics, lasers, dental advances, and research. The fourth edition has been fully revised to provide the latest information in the field and features many new topics including zirconia crowns, revascularisation and pulp regeneration, silver diamine fluoride, general anaesthesia, and presurgical nasoalveolar moulding in the management of cleft lip and palate.
