Dentistry refers to practice of diagnosing, preventing and treating the various disorders related to oral cavity, dentition and oral mucosa. The varied branches of dentistry include forensic odontology, dental public health, oral implantology, periodontology, orthodontics, etc. This book unfolds the innovative aspects of oral healthcare and dentistry which will be crucial for the progress of this field in the future. The various advancements in this area are glanced at and their applications as well as ramifications are looked at in detail in the text. With state-of-the-art inputs by acclaimed experts of this field, the book targets students and professionals. It will help new researchers by foregrounding their knowledge in this branch.
This book focuses on the future direction of dental research in every discipline. In this context, dental research must be deliverable to society, not just to churn out scientific publications but to truly change protocols applied in the clinic. Most of the topics covered in this book discuss the current trends and future advances in clinical dentistry as well as dental research. The book covers advances in research, future perspectives and challenges faced in different disciplines of dentistry. Various chapters discuss the recent advances in materials, methods and diagnostics, as well as their future implications. The contents review the applications of big data, artificial intelligence and machine learning in various branches of dentistry like orthodontics, prosthodontics, periodontics, pediatric dentistry, endodontics and oral and maxillofacial surgery. With the world moving into the digital age and advancing technology, we have collated the latest developments in the field of dental research.
About 550 registrants from 51 different countries attended the Seventh Ottawa Conference on Medical Education and Assessment in Maastricht. We received 525 abstracts for the conference, divided in thematic poster sessions and platform presentations. Organising the conference was an honour and we tried to meet the high standards of a friendly and relaxed atmosphere which has characterized previous Ottawa conferences. During and after the conference about 250 papers were submitted for publication in the conference proceedings, leaving us little time for a post-conference depression. Despite the large number of papers, the editors have attempted to review and edit the papers as care fully as possible. Occasionally, however, correspondence exceeded reasonable deadlines, preventing careful editing of a small number of the papers. Although we felt that our editorial task was not quite finished, we nevertheless decided to include these papers. We thank the many authors for their enthusiastic and prompt response to - occasionally tedious - editorial suggestions and requests. We are sure that this collective effort has resulted in a book that will make an important contribution to the field of medical education. The editors want to thank Jocelyn Flippo-Berger whose expertise with desk top publishing and perseverance was a great help.

The case studies provided in Case Studies for Advances in Paleoimaging will provide the reader with real-world scenarios and case examples that will help prepare researchers to discover new ways to apply the various modalities associated with the technology. This book is a follow-up to the Beckett and Conlogue’s classic work Paleoimaging (2009) and companion to their new contribution Advances in Paleoimaging (2020). The case studies outlined demonstrate the problem-solving nature of imaging research and the application of critical thought to unique problems. Further, Case Studies for Advances in Paleoimaging demonstrates the incredible depth of application of these modalities including photography, endoscopy, x-ray fluorescence, plane radiography, digital radiography, and advanced imaging modalities like multi-detector computed tomography, micro-computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging. Of particular note, case study seven, Contrast Media Injections, informs the researcher regarding methods to bring out specific anatomic structures that may be the target of a given research question. Intended for students, faculty, and seasoned researchers, Case Studies for Advances in Paleoimaging presents actual cases from the authors’ vast experience in the application of paleoimaging modalities in order to answer unique research problems. The book also serves as a field manual for current and future researchers as they approach similar or new cases that present unique challenges. These cases demonstrate how the varied imaging methodologies can provide data which greatly enriches our understanding of the subject at hand, be it ancient cultural remains, forensic recovery, museum holdings, or other anthropological and archaeological artifacts.
