In commemoration of the 60th anniversary of Quintessence Publishing, this book provides authoritative commentaries on the origins and the state of the art and science of dentistry as well as a look forward at anticipated developments in the major areas of clinical practice. Predicting the future is not an exact science; however, analyzing future trends based on what is known and can be expected is important for the purpose of strategic planning at the individual, clinical, and institutional levels. Clinical Dental Medicine 2020 sets the course in each of the major fields of dentistry, emphasizing the challenges and opportunities available to forward-looking members of the dental team. It is hoped that this book will inspire the next generation of dental students, practitioners, opinion leaders, and authors.
