Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Dental assistant and dental hygiene students will benefit from this text's clear presentation of anatomy and review of tooth morphology. Learning features include tooth identification charts, a glossary, and chapter objectives, summaries, and review questions. The book is useful for preparing for the CDA exam and the RDH National Boards, which both cover dental anatomy. In this second edition, the morphology section is expanded to provide a framework for presenting morphology within the context of anatomy. Illustrations have also been enhanced for this edition. Short was formerly a professor at Middlesex Community College. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
