Review from previous edition Overall, this is an excellent text for
anyone who treats children and it should be on your bookshelves...
I would thoroughly recommend it. * Journal of Orthodontics *
This in an excellent book, which I would thoroughly recommend not only for newly emerging specialist[s] in paediatric dentistry, but for all clinicians that see and treat children. It is a comprehensive book covering all aspects of paediatric dentistry. I find it an easy to read book, which makes it very useful for quick reference in the surgery. I suggest it is well worth the money and should be on everyone's bookshelf. * Dental Update *
When starting a paedodontics course and embarking on your first child patients, this is a life saver that will give you the knowledge and confidence you need. Comprehensive and well illustrated, it starts from the basics and helps you graduate to more difficult subject areas, such as child orthodontics and minor surgery. * Amazon customer review *
