Customer Reviews

  • Great book! 4 Aug 2010
Hi! I recently purchase this book for my wife who is A Dentist and undergoing specialty training in Forensic Odontology. She says the book was a great help during her training and thinks highly of it. Though it may not be as detailed , it gives an overall view and this book is great as an introduction to Forensic Odontology. I am a Forensic Pathologist here in Liberia and I find the book a great reference for cases concerning the oral cavity and its surrounding structures.
