Dentist on the ward is an excellent text for dental students or hospital-based dentists beginning a post in an oral and maxillofacial surgery unit. It provides a good overview of the roles and expectations of a DCT across a range of relevant clinical environments. Information on common clinical procedures is somewhat lacking, therefore this book should be read as a guide with which to supplement the reader's learning and clinical experience. Overall, this text is very relevant and fun to read. We highly recommended it for any dentist about to start their first hospital job.
