Dental caries: the disease and its clinical management / edited by Ole Fejerskov, Bente Nyvad, and Edwina Kidd.

D 617.6631 D41

In this highly-anticipated new edition, the editors maintain the same focus on high-level coverage of the disease aetiology and process, clinical management best-practice, and wider public health issues connected with dental caries management, including an enhanced focus on the ‘caries control concept’. The aim is to link theory with clinical performance, making prevention, diagnosis and restorative procedures evidence based. The structure of the book has been completely overhauled, with the same coverage streamlined in order to distil information effectively.

Lasers in dentistry: guide for clinical practice / edited by Patricia M. de Freitas, Alyne Simões ; foreword by Marcia Martins Marques.

D 617.67 L343 F86

Lasers have become an increasingly useful tool in conventional dental practice. Their precision and less invasive quality make them an attractive technology in esthetic and pediatric dentistry, oral medicine, and a range of other dental procedures. Lasers in Dentistry: Guide for Clinical Practice is a comprehensive, yet concise and easy-to-use guide to integrating lasers into conventional clinical practice.

The book begins by providing the reader a thorough understanding of how lasers work and their varied effects on oral tissues. Subsequent chapters are organized by procedure type, illustrating common clinical techniques with step-by-step illustrations and case examples. In addition, each chapter provides an overview of the latest research for use in clinical practice. More comprehensive than at atlas yet practical and clinically oriented in its approach, Lasers in Dentistry is an essential tool for practitioners and students looking to broader their skill set in laser dentistry.

Date: July 17, 2015 (Friday)
Time: 12:45 p.m. to 1:15 p.m.
Venue: The Lounge, 7/F, The Prince Philip Dental Hospital

Presenter: Mr. Yau Tak Wai, MPhil Candidate

Title: Item Response Models for Child Perception Questionnaire

Abstract: This study aimed to assess factors associated with children’s oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) using Child perception Questionnaire (CPQ11-14). The baseline sample consisted of 668 children aged at 12; 436 were followed up 3 years later. Item response theory (IRT) models were used. Some items were found not invariant over 3 years. For the 12-year-old children, heathier oral health behavior, better gum status and some demographic variables were found to be associated with better OHRQoL. With the statistical adjustment of longitudinal invariance, OHRQoL level in general has improved over 3 years but no predictor was found to be associated with OHRQoL in follow‑up. For those with lower family income, their OHRQoL had worsened over 3 years. The use of the IRT models enables the identification of the factors associated with OHRQoL and its changes over time provides important information to oral healthcare researchers and policymakers.
