Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The book has a number of client handouts, which will aid a practice if they are starting off in dentistry. A major strength of this book is that it has a comprehensive glossary and it is adequately indexed. The book is well written and in a format which allows easily access to a particular topic, which has enough technical information to diagnosis and understand the disease or problem, as well as exception pictures of most diseases and conditions known in dentistry. This is a book I would recommend and should be in the library of all veterinary practices. Even if you only see a handful of dentistry cases, this book will aid your diagnosis, improve your treatment and encourage that special interest in veterinary dentistry."  Australian Veterinary Journal
