The foundation for all dental knowledge!
A good intro to dental anatomy and occlusion, October 14, 2010
I’m a student in new york and we were assigned this book. The quick and dirty is that the book is somewhat long-winded and tough to follow, but gives a very detailed description of the teeth. Many new dental students will find that using the glut of new dental terminology like line angles, different types of ridges and just finding the orientation in space is hard. If you can get past this, the book is very helpful. Whats really helpful (and what most of our students use) is the tooth CD that comes with it. It is a series of cartoon picures that summarizes paragraph-long descriptions into something as easy as an arrow. Its just that easy. If you are fortunate to stumble across a PDF copy of the CD, use it. However, personally, I am very happy with purchasing the book because it also includes a number of flashcards in the back and it will no doubt be useful in studying for the boards. There it is. The book isnt THAT bad. Its just VERY descriptive.

I like the Wheelers book for somethings. The pictures are great and have really great labels for all of the details. There are also blank flash cards so you can quiz yourself on the anatomy. However, the text can be very dense and difficult to understand the wording at times. There are also no quiz or review questions that would probably be helpful. Apparently though the people who make up the board exam use Wheelers to make their questions so I guess it’s a catch 22?
