Editorial Reviews

Review

“This excellent book is easy to read, is well illustrated, presents a comprehensive overview of SRBDs and is well documented. It belongs on the shelf of every dentist who treats OSA patients, can serve as an excellent text for any SRBD continuing education course for dentists starting out in this area and could be an excellent text for either undergraduate or postgraduate dental students should the subject of SRBDs find its way into the dental school curriculum. This book will not put you to sleep!!” (AAOP Council, Spring 2010)
