The key attribute of a good textbook is its ability to explain things so interestingly that students are able to understand and appreciate it. Dentistry and teaching of dentistry are undergoing profound changes continuously. Rapid progress has recently been made in the fields of adhesive dental materials, advances in instrument, microbiology, physiology, preventive dentistry as well as genetics and forensic science. It is for us as teachers to convey the recent inventions and discoveries in the fields of pediatric dentistry to the students. This book is intended for students who are pursuing careers in pediatric dental health. My aim is to present a straightforward, uncomplicated approach to the subject both for the pupils and their teachers. I had three main objectives for preparing this book: (i) To bring the book up-to-date in both depth and scope, so that it may reflect recent discoveries and advances in the fields of pediatric dentistry. (ii) To present the matter with appropriate explanations and functional examples so that it can be more accessible to a larger group of students. (iii) To make the book fully career-oriented, to fulfill the needs of every undergraduate and postgraduate students. Students learn more when presented with concise illustrated educational material. I would say that along with the vast knowledge that the book covers, it is an affordable book for keen and eager students. Emphasis has been placed on clarity and importance of mastering fundamentals.
