Reviews

"This book provides an extremely valuable source of information that should be in the armamentarium of any dental professional, in primary, secondary as well as tertiary care settings."Reviewed by European Journal of Orthodontics, Feb 2015 "Now in its seventh edition, the text book seems as close as could be to a completely comprehensive overview of common and uncommon medical problems and their dental relevance. Its shelf-bowing heaviness is testament to its detail, but that doesn't make it a heavy read." Reviewed by Bex Stockton on behalf of BDJ Student, February 2015
