Reviews

"The authors have produced a concise summary of dental public health, never an easy thing to produce. It will be invaluable not only for undergraduates but also for professions complimentary to dentistry learning about public health. Postgraduate students and practitioners will find it a useful reference. I found it to be well laid out, interesting, and a very readable book. I'm sure I will refer to it at various tmes throughout my dental career."

"This book is well organized, well indexed, and extremely easy to read — so much so that I would have no problem recommending it to a layperson. ... It is an excellent review for board preparation and textbook for dental/hygiene students. This edition provides current information and reinforces the role and relevancy of dental public health as a specialty." - Gregory A. Stoute, Doody's Notes
