Book Description

The new sixth edition of this definitive reference in dental education has been updated with detailed, contemporary information on the development, structure, and function of the teeth and surrounding tissues. This text is rich with features that provide insight on current research and trends, foster classroom discussion, and provide avenues for further research. Each chapter begins with an outline of chapter content for quick reference and concludes with an up-to-date bibliography section of recommended readings from journals and textbooks. New to this edition is a CD-ROM containing hundreds of full-color photos and micrographs, a comprehensive test bank, and a list of recommended readings for further information on the topics presented in the book. With the inclusion of the CD-ROM, the author states, “This edition can be considered a textbook and electronic learning medium that every student involved in oral health will require and that practitioners will want to have in their offices for reference.”

Editorial Reviews


REVIEW OF CURRENT EDITION:”The author feels that the impact of this edition will be demonstrated as transitional toward creating a fully interactive, electronic version. In the future, this will help the dentist keep pace with tissue engineering and gene therapy to heal and rebuild oral tissues. This text is a most comprehensive resource of oral histology that every practitioner should have in his or her office.”
– Journal of Dental Hygiene – 2004

“The” Authoratative Textbook, July 3, 2008

While no textbook is perfect, this latest edition of Ten Cate’s Oral Histology is the best source of information on oral histology for students in dental school. The text is easy to read, the illustrations have been greatly improved since the last edition. I teach oral histology and I consider this book to be the best on the market.

One of the best books in Oral Histology, November 2, 2008

This new version, is quite enhanced esp with discussions and controverses parts.but most of the figures are the same except some few new illustrations and the gentic backgroud issues still poor.
i think in couple of years h’ll need to update the Tooth development chap at least ! a lot of studies are processing.
the Cd is very good with the tests and the data base.
I recommend strongly this book.

Great book for the dental student, March 10, 2007

Great embryology, easy to understand.
Great development, pictures, terminology in a vry easily understood book. There is no falling asleep in this one becasue the author doesn’t show off his brain by using stupid words and extra fluff.
Book is straight forward and easy to understand and I will use it for the boards.
