Medicine and dentistry must be more closely meshed – say two young oral and maxillofacial surgeons
from Ansbach, Germany. Not enough general medical knowledge is present in our dental practices today –
and conversely, general practitioners and medical specialists know too little about dental medicine.

Markus Tröltzsch, Dr med, Dr med dent, and Matthias Tröltzsch, PD, Dr med, Dr med dent, are two of the
three authors of a reference volume entitled “Medizin in der täglichen zahnärztlichen Praxis” (“Medicine
in Daily Dental Practice”). In a number of free-standing chapters, their book presents fundamental facts
about cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus, bisphosphonates and oncological topics.
