Great textbook from a great endodontist, October 19, 2011
I’ve read his book back in 1999 which was the 6 or 7th ed, but this one is totally updated and refreshed with the latest knowledge. I’ve actually worked with Dr Cohen in SF and I’m so glad I picked his brain. He is a genius. I’ve also have talks with Dr Herbranson and picked his brain. I love endo and I am also a general dentist. It’s great to clean, shape, pack, and restore failed teeth and see them function for many many more years. I could do implant surgery, which I do in the office as well, but I like to be conservative and “fix” bad teeth. It’s just the right thing to do imo. I hope you get this book, it is the best of all the texts on endo.
Perfect for Endo residents, January 5, 2011
I am an Endo Resident in America and this book is a must. Just updated for 2010, it has all the new products and literature updates. The topics are very detailed and covers almost all aspects of Endodontics. It is a great reference for undergrads and mandatory for people who wish to become an Endodontist. Probably the most used Endo textbook in America. It also comes with a CD which allows online access to the electronic book so you can get photos and stuff for presentations.
this book is a must, December 6, 2010
Pathways of the pulp is a book that every dentist should own. It is a excellent reference for any endodontic topic.
I recommend it 100%
