Overview

This comprehensive introductory text is perfect for students studying dentistry at any level or scope, featuring coverage of dental anatomy and head and neck anatomy, as well as oral histology and embryology. The easy-to-understand text material is enhanced and supported with abundant, high quality illustrations. This edition combines the text with built-in workbook features that enhance and reinforce learning. Flashcards help students memorize and quickly recall vital facts. No other text of its kind offers a learning package this complete!

  • This is one of the only dental anatomy texts that cover all areas of study (dental anatomy, oral histology and embryology, and head and neck anatomy), written at an appropriate level for all students studying the dental sciences.
  • Over 550 excellent illustrations support the text, including simple, accurate, effective line drawings that clearly show what the text explains and make difficult subject matter easier for students to comprehend.
  • Review questions at the end of each chapter provide an opportunity for students to evaluate their understanding of the chapter material and review areas of weakness.
  • Multiple-choice tests at the end of each unit enable students to check their comprehension of related topics and evaluate areas of weakness.
  • A comprehensive glossary of all key terms throughout the chapters is provided at the end of the book so students can easily look up the definition of a key term at any time.
  • Objectives listed at the beginning of all chapters outline what students should know after completing the chapter.
  • Suggested readings refer the reader to current and classic resources for further study.
  • A perforated workbook section is incorporated into the text, offering questions that follow the format of the dental hygiene national exam and the dental assisting certification exam.
  • Additional flashcards include illustrations on one side and succinct, critical information on the other that students can use to review and memorize key concepts.
  • A new chapter on Root Morphology offers new coverage of a topic that is extremely important to anyone doing root planing and curettage, addressing: how shape, length, and surface area of roots affect displacement; pathology; other factor affecting the root; normal ranges of root variation; and how the tooth is affected by pressures and tension.
  • Chapters have been reorganized to present the most frequently used information first, covering Dental Anatomy before Oral Histology and Embryology and Head and Neck Anatomy.
  • About 75 additional line drawings, with a second color added for emphasis, depict labeled parts.

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some two-color illustrations.
