British Dental Journal, January 2014
"The book provides a fantastic blend of core teaching and texts from the relevant disciplines, to allow students the opportunity to gain not only core knowledge but also the ability to approach clinical problem solving logically. The volume also conditions the student to make sensible, safe and informed decisions about patient management, not only for BDS/BChD/MFDS finals but also in the field of primary dental care. This knowledge, and informed decision making, not only aids the ability to rationalise clinical scenarios, but also promotes self appraisal and knowledge of when to refer to specialist colleagues."

The Master Dentistry series provides a good overview of the subject areas and I found them particularly useful during exam times. The text is appropriately supplemented with great diagrams and the layout of the books makes all the subject areas easy to access and find.
At the end of each chapter there are self assessment questions which were really useful and would aid any student’s learning. Each chapter has a helpful overview and learning objectives are provided throughout each chapter.
The books give a great summary of all the subject areas they cover but need to be used in conjunction with a more detailed textbook. I used them quite often if I didn't understand a certain part of a lecture as the wording is easy to understand and is uncomplicated. They're a must for any dental student’s bookshelf!
