Review quote

Dental students are going to love this book! As a recent graduate I can say that dental students love this book and have done so since the first edition. Now, as hospital trainees, this book is still in all our bags. Its clearly defined chapters offer excellent and concise best principles for nearly all aspects of dentistry...The new edition covers the whole of clinical dentistry in a brief but concise manner. British Dental Journal Review from previous edition This is a most valuable handbook with a wide range of appeal, from the undergraduate and those preparing for a range of postgraduate dental examinations through to trainers and other senior colleagues who need to bring themselves up-to-date with innovations outside their main field of practice Ann R Coll Surg Engl You're the best we'll make you better is the promise of the Top Gun school to its fighter pilots. This Handbook is in the same mould...As a specialist I read this Handbook with pleasure and shame; pleasure at a lucid concise style and shame at how much I have forgotten that the authors cover comprehensively International Dental Journal Absolutely first class. No one should be without one of these at any stage of their career. Ideal aide memoire for all those things you don't do or think about regularly. Helps to avoid those ' well what am I going to do about this' moments. Tells you what you want to know accurately and succinctly. Amazon.co.uk Review An excellent handbook to have during your studies, or in clinical practice. Covers almost every general topic, in a simple, correct and easy to read way. Recommended. Great value for money. Amazon.co.uk Review ...[A] mine of information in miniature format...In terms of value this has to be a best buy at this cover price...it is an essential purchase for any practitioner treating patients...It will have a place in my practice library and probably be used on a day-to-day basis Dental Practiceshow more
