Reviews

"By focusing on development and structure of head and neck anatomy this book is perfectly suited to its intended audience, the undergraduate dental student. It also acts as a good recap for the postgraduate clinician. Overall, I found this book very enjoyable and easy to read. As it is an extremely user-friendly text I'd have no hesitation in recommending it to others and feel it would be well-placed in the collection of any aspiring dentist." - British Dental Journal
