Book 7: The ROMA Manual on Dentistry- A Lighthearted yet Deadly Serious Look at Our Profession
ROMA is an amusing departure from the popular DentalCodeology mini-book format - yet like previous books in this series, packs in a ton of information and insight. This time around, Patti partnered with Benson Baty DMD, to examine the tightrope walk that dental clinicians perform every day - balancing the practice of evidence based dentistry with the slings and arrows of oral health urban legends Patti and Dr. Benson discuss examples of when a tradition of care instead of a progressive standard of care.
