“this textbook is highly recommended to undergraduate students as it is well written, clearly laid out and helpfully illustrated.
The objective of the authors, in providing the clinician with a sound theoretical foundation on which successful clinical skills can be built, has certainly been achieved.
The text should also be of interest to practitioners and those preparing for postgraduate exams.”
Dental Update“In summation, the authors have achieved their aims and I would recommend this textbook for undergraduates.”
British Dental Journal
“…the last chapter of forty pages is very useful. It is completely devoted to complaints like pain, loose dentures, recurring fractures, flabby ridges, sore mouth and speech impediment.”

Pretty decent, March 17, 2007
Decent quality book. Very understandable, and definitely worth buying.
Initially bought this thru Amazon itself (thinking that since they’ve got that massive system all together, it would be zero fuss… but apparently they didnt have it in stock yet, so they had to order it in), but they were disgustingly slow so I cancelled that order and got it through one of the “used and new” sellers… and it arrived by the time Amazon would have barely even managed to get the order packaged.
