Congratulations to Dr M S Muthu for his latest book on Pediatric dentistry

Dr M S Muthu has authored two books – A textbook titled “Pediatric Dentistry – Principles and Practice”with its second edition due in June 2011 and “MCQ s in Pediatric Dentistry” due for its second edition by the end of this month. His books aim at helping the undergraduate and postgraduate students of Dentistry to strengthen their basics in Pediatric Dentistry. If you are interested, you can buy these books here.

Dr M S Muthu has written the textbook “Pediatric Dentistry – Principles and Practice” along with Dr Sivakumar. This book is their attempt to share what they have learnt over many years as students, teachers and practitioners to their colleagues, faculties, students and patients.

A sincere effort has been taken to integrate the syllabus recommended by Dental Council of India and various universities across the country into this book.

Few chapters like Early Childhood Caries and Infant Oral Care Measures, Child Psychology, Teeth identification, Traumatic Injuries, Sports Dentistry, Drugs Used In Pediatric Dentistry are unique either in terms of content or the mode of presentation and have been primarily written with the objective of helping the student read Pediatric Dentistry with more ease and interest.

The project of writing a Multiple Choice Questions book was primarily taken up by Dr Muthu with the aim of helping the undergraduate and postgraduate students of Dentistry to strengthen their basics in Pediatric Dentistry.

Each chapter also includes questions which the student usually comes across in licensing examinations abroad (like National Board Dental Examinations in USA and Canada). This book will definitely be of great help in efficiently tackling objective competitive  examinations both at the national & international levels as its key strength is stressing upon the fundamental concepts in an objective manner.
