Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Kirk W. Noraian, DDS, MS (University of Chicago Medical Center)
Description: This eighth edition incorporates all the major advances in periodontics since the seventh edition from 1990. Many sections have been rewritten, and new chapters have been added to this comprehensive text on periodontal therapy.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide general dental practitioners and students of general dentistry with the basic and clinical developments in periodontics. The updates are welcome in this edition, and the author's objectives were met by having various experts contribute specific chapters.
Audience: The text is written at an appropriate level for dental undergraduate students and general practitioners. The contributors are well-known authorities on their respective subject areas.
Features: The book is appropriately illustrated and the references are current and pertinent. Both the index and table of contents are sufficiently useful and helpful. Chapters are well-outlined and easy to view.
Assessment: The quality of the book is first-rate and is helpful to general dentists, dental students, and even periodontists to assist referring doctors. This classic text is a must for all complete dental libraries, and the updates justify replacing the previous edition.
