Medical training is a difficult journey with enormous amounts of information to absorb over a short time period.

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.

A Comprehensive Approach to the Art of Physical Examination
Ellen P. Tappero, Mary Ellen Honeyfield
The newly revised, 25th Anniversary Edition of this definitive publication on neonatal care continues to illustrate how to systematically and accurately gather assessment data and interpret results. Because even normal newborns feature a tremendous range of physical variation, subtle signs that indicate internal malformations or syndromes may escape notice without a proper assessment. Many problems in the neonate can be noticed early by an astute nurse, nurse practitioner, or physician with honed assessment skills, long before electronic monitors or other equipment can detect them.

This second edition now delves even deeper into key strategies for rapidly moving research-based interventions into real world settings in the form of evidence-based quality improvement as well as the challenges of working in an increasingly diverse professional research environment.
