Textbook of Complete Dentures, 6th Edition, January 11, 2012

This book overall will give you good information as far as making denture for patient, a good reference book. However, the author does not cover lab communication. I would give it a 4 stars if there are some pearls on how to communicate with the lab i.e. tell your lab guy how to process once you have it all done in the clinic.

Good for dental students and GPs., July 19, 2010

This is book is exactly what it claims to be. I am not disappointed at all.
