The seventh edition of this book adopts a friendly two color format followed internationally by most publishers. An effort has been made to improve the overall quality of the illustrations which have been painstakingly redrawn and enhanced using the latest available software. This book includes all the chapters and fully covers the syllabus prescribed by the Dental Council of India. Extensive coverage in depth into various related topics have been done in order to reduce the task of students searching for many books. . In a novel approach, special emphasis has been laid to describe the epidemiological aspects of oral diseases and conditions in an Indian situation rather than relying only on foreign background. An extensive coverage on the topic of “Fluorides” in Preventive Dentistry is included for the benefit of undergraduate students. The chapter on Biostatistics has been redone with suitable dental examples in order to simplify the topic and is illustrated with color plates. For a proper understanding of the subject, separate chapters have been set to explain “Definitions” frequently used in this subject. The Chapter on “Indices in Dental Epidemiology” is extensively revised by adding almost all the Indices available for Dental Diseases and Disorders. Special considerations have been laid for recent topics of interest like Occupational Hazards & Infection Control in dentistry, nutrition and oral health, Health Care Delivery Systems in India and Health economics. Chapters on “Establishing and Managing a Dental Office”, “Mobile Dental Clinics” and a detailed explanation of “Case History” have been included which is very important for a graduating dentist. A new chapter on “Palliative Care” is a value addition in this edition. Dental professionals come across many patients with chronic and incurable diseases and understanding palliative care will help them provide better care to patients coming under their care.

With an increased impetus for research in many of the prime Universities of India, the focus is now upon undergraduate research. However, research studies need to have good methodological quality, avoiding all possible biases and conducted and reported with scientific accuracy. Therefore “guidelines for reporting epidemiological studies” have been incorporated to help students improve the accuracy, transparency and completeness of health research and increase the value of published research.
