Overview


This volume provides dental students with an understanding of the gross, neurological, and developmental anatomy underlying dentistry and its major specialties. Emphasis is placed on the structure, function, development, and growth of the oral cavity and its surroundings, while aspects of anatomy which are necessary for an understanding of the general morphology and function of the body are also stressed. Wherever possible adult human structure is explained on developmental or comparative grounds, and clinical applications are included when they stem directly from anatomical structure. The second edition includes a revised and updated section on neuroanatomy, as well as many full-color illustrations and a useful glossary.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jean-Francois Bedard, DMD (University of Chicago Medical Center)
Description: This the third edition of a basic introduction to gross and developmental anatomy for dental students.
Purpose: This book is dedicated to dental students and is meant to provide a textbook containing all the gross anatomy necessary for the practice of dentistry and its major specialties, with an emphasis on head and neck, thorax, and nervous system. It is assumed that the reader is taking or has taken a practical course in topographical anatomy, preferably one based on dissection.
Audience: Graduates preparing for board exams and/or certification exams and postgraduate students will find this practical textbook useful.
Features: With the exception of a few reproductions of radiographs, this book contains exclusively anatomical schematic representations, some of them in color. The book includes an introduction, developmental anatomy, thorax, head and neck, central nervous system, and appendixes. The anatomy of the dentition, the limbs, and the abdomen were deliberately omitted. An introduction to radiological anatomy of the head is featured.
Assessment: The original concepts behind many illustrations are extremely interesting and lead to an "easy to understand, thus to remember" approach to anatomy. A good review of the systems is presented; the sections on head and neck anatomy and cranial nerves are particularly well constructed and presented.
