Dr. Nicolas Giraudeau of the University of Montpellier, France, managed to gather together the most famous specialists in e-health in the field of dentistry and oral medicine. The book he coordinated as editor, e-Health Care in Dentistry and Oral Medicine is divided into three parts and 12 chapters.
Part I, General Aspects of e-Oral Health, defines teledentistry and e-oral health tools, and then discusses the development of teledentistry from pilot projects to implementation, as well as the ethics and economics of teledentistry.
The second part, e-Health Care in Oral Medicine, presents in turn the fields of application of teledentistry, Oral Health Promotion, Implantology, Orthodontics and Oral Cancer, introduction, materials and methods, results, discussion and conclusion.
Part III, a global view on teledentistry, is a brief overview which presents the current state of e-health in different countries of the world: United States of America, Brazil and France.
This book argues in favour of e-oral health, which sums up information on information and communication technologies for oral health care. This book can be considered as an useful guide not only for dentists, but also for dental hygienists, dental assistants and professionals in other medical fields.
