Hoboken, N.J., October 2, 2012óJohn Wiley & Sons, Inc., recently announced a collaboration with the American Dental Association (ADA) to publish the latest book in their "Practical Guide Series," The ADA Practical Guide to Patients with Medical Conditions.
The book is designed to help dentists deliver safe and coordinated care for patients with medical conditions through detailed references, images and expert advice from 25 academicians and clinicians.
"We are pleased to work with Wiley to publish a text that delivers evidence-based, clinical and practical information for dentists with a patient-focused approach to dental care," said William R. Calnon, D.D.S., President, American Dental Association.
The ADA Practical Guide to Patients with Medical Conditions addresses many chronic diseases, including cardiovascular, pulmonary, endocrine, HIV/AIDS as well as oral manifestations that may reflect the patient's general health status. The book provides a practical and easy-to-use resource for diagnosing diseases and making evidence-based treatment decisions to help manage these oral conditions.

"This publication is an excellent way for Wiley to help promote the ADA's mission of advancing the oral health of the public and raising public awareness of the importance of oral health to overall health."
