6Preface
The Essentials in Medicine for Dental Students is written keeping in view of the syllabi of the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences, Bangalore. Teaching of medicine to Undergraduate and Postgraduate students of Medicine, Dental and Allied Health Sciences student for the last 30 years has prompted me to write a book for the students of Dental and Allied Health Sciences Courses.
The book is made comprehensive with essential medical information needed for the undergraduate students and is a useful guide for the examination going students in medicine.
Style, format and content of this book are made simple such that any one can follow and understand the subject easily. However, it is not a substitute for the standard textbook of medicine.
I am greatly indebted to Dr B Vasanthi S Shetty, Dr Ashish Gopal, Dr Sucharitha, Dr Kishan Shetty, Dr Sanjiva Rai and physician friends who have helped me in compiling this book.
I thank Professor N Sridhar Shetty, Dean, AB Shetty Memorial Institute of Dental Sciences, Mangalore for writing the Foreword to this book.
I acknowledge with gratitude the kind co-operation rendered by Mr RK Yadav, Director Publishing and the editorial staff of Jaypee Brothers Medical Publishers (P) Ltd, New Delhi in bringing out this book.
