Review The book provides a good, concise summary of many of the traditional preclinical topics. Dental Update This is a veritable mine of information in miniature format... an almost indispensable easy reference tome for students everywhere... An outstanding little book; its pocket size belies its usefulness and the mega-contents between its covers that will be really relevant to all. At this cover price it has to be a first-class value buy, essential for every practice library and easily the most concise reference source in these topics for any clinician. Dental Practice I highly recommend this book for undergraduate clinical dental students and for those who are working towards postgraduate examinations in particular MFDS and MSc Orth. I think they will find it invaluable. Journal of Orthodontics, Vol 31 (1) Although not exhaustive, overall this is a good reference book and especially useful in the pre-clinical years where the basic dental sciences are examined. This is not to say, however, that clinical students wouldn't find this book handy. On the contrary, it is a great way to fill holes in your basic science knowledge to complement clinical understanding.
