"Dentistry in prisons" book

Dentistry in prisons

This pioneering textbook was launched at the National Association of Prison Dentistry. It is aimed at dental professionals who work within a prison or secure environment. Historically many such dentists have 'learnt on the job' about the additional responsibilities of working within a prison and there has been little or no formal training or information available. The NAPD(UK) formed three years ago and sought to bring prison dentists together. This book was a direct response to demand. 


The book is practically formatted from the patient's arrival at the dental surgery to their departure. There is a detailed overview of the current prison population, its health and dental needs and an example of dental triage. 

Preparation of the dental surgery, the importance of cross infection measures, treatment planning for the prisoner and clinical challenges of dental treatment for prisoners are all covered in enough detail to give an overview of the challenges for the prison dentist. There are plenty of references for further reading for those that crave more detail. 

Throughout the book, there are references to the current guidelines and documents relating to the provision of dental treatment in prisons including an overview of competencies required for Dentist with Special Interest accreditation. 

This book will be a valuable tool for all members of the prison dental team, in particular, those starting out in a career in prison dentistry or special care dentistry.
