Customer Reviews

Great book, 30 Sep 2010

A good overall book which covers everything you need to know in these areas with lots of useful pictures.

Excellent, 31 May 2010

Perhaps doesn’t cover every topic ideally, this is still the best oral medicine/pathology textbook on the market. The chapters on pre-malignancy / malignancy are fantastic.
The medically compromised patient chapters, are however a little sparse and confusing.

The perfect book for oral medicine, 2 April 2007

Being a fourth year dental student, this book has provided alot of information for oral medicine.
Alot of my lecturers use this book in their handouts, so when you read those handouts you know where to look afterwards. It has nice diagrams which are easy to understand and make your studying a bit less stressful.
What I also enjoyed in this book, is that it doesn’t stick just to oral medicine, but it also takes you a step further giving you information concerning not only dental but medically relevant information as well.

Brilliant Book!, 2 April 2007

This is an excellent book for dental students, it contains just the amount of information coupled with some remarkable colour images.
Don’t let its title of Oral pathology and oral medicine mislead you to think that it is just a collection of slides – it has a lot of in depth knowledge in all areas relating to oral health as well as a section with the relevant medical aspects of dentistry covered in good detail. Its very easy to read and doesnt contain alot of waffle, the bullet point boxes highlight the relevant and important key features which are great for revision.
I thoroughly recommend this book for all dental undergraduate students.
