This book is an offshoot of the Seattle Study Club, a popular continuing education group with hundreds of chapters throughout the US and Canada. Based on the proposition that specific treatments and techniques come and go but comprehensive treatment planning is universal and timeless, this group unites clinicians of all levels and from all disciplines, challenging them to master the principles of total case management through interdisciplinary treatment-planning exercises. In keeping with that philosophy, this book articulates the seemingly mystical process by which master clinicians treatment plan their own cases. Because the authors represent every specialty in dentistry.periodontology, orthodontics, prosthodontics, endodontics, and oral and maxillofacial surgery.

First published in 1992, Fundamentals of Psychiatric Treatment Planning outlines an approach that quickly became the definitive standard for writing treatment plans. Developed by clinical psychiatrist James A. Kennedy, this practical, intuitive method organizes psychiatric problems into seven categories: psychological impairment, social skills, violence, activities of daily living, substance abuse, medical impairment, and ancillary impairment.

Proper dissemination of knowledge in the dental specialties is currently one of the biggest obstacles to consistent improvement in care. This book examines the treatment-planning process from a multidisciplinary perspective in an effort to balance the very complex process of diagnosis with the need for simplicity and coherence. Innovations in techniques and materials appear on a daily basis. At the same time, patients today demand individualized treatment plans that address not only their dental and/or esthetic problems but their self-image and personal expectations as well. Like its predecessor, The Art of the Smile, this book promotes theoretical understanding while offering practical insight and clinical guidance. It is intended for the beginner and the advanced clinician alike, each seeking the tools necessary to achieve an optimal result.
