Good All-Around BookJanuary 31, 2011

This proved to be a good all-around book in endodontic microbiology. The organization of the chapters allow for reading for specific material without having to read the entire book. The chapters are terse enough that the clinician won’t get bogged down in basic research microbiology. There are also a few good clinical chapters. One negative is that the chapter on facial infections includes nothing but medical material on necrotizing microbial infections. This is a nice diversion, but not relevant. Overall, this is a good introductory book for the doctoral student; a good review for the post doctoral student; and a handy reference for the clinician.

Essential reading in microbiology August 6, 2009
It is a unique book, the first complete compilation of data regarding all aspects related to endodontic infections, providing texts written by the most renowned authors/researchers in this area all over the world.
