Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This book has to be recommended for all those wishing to establish the appropriate level of knowledge for the contemporary practice of dentistry and for those wishing to refresh their knowledge. No dental library should be without this book, let alone a dental practice."

- British Dental Journal, review of the previous edition

"It has clear details in each chapter with a section which begins the consideration of clinical relevance at the end of each chapter. Each chapter is logically laid out and provides clear detail of all aspects of head and neck anatomy...This book has to be recommend for all those wishing to establish the appropriate level of knowledge for the contemporary practice of dentistry and for those wishing to refresh their knowledge. No dental library should be without this book, let alone a dental practice."

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David W. Brzezinski, MD (University of Michigan Medical School)
Description: This atlas seeks to demonstrate relevant head and neck anatomy to dental students. In addition to ample illustrations, it also provides important factual information in outline and tabular form.
Purpose: The book will teach dental students pertinent anatomy and will serve as an excellent source of review material for the national boards. This is a worthy goal in a time in which precious few books tailor their basic science material to dental students. Even a brief examination of the text will reveal that the purpose has been met.
Audience: This will be used by undergraduate dental students as well as by dental hygiene students. Furthermore, it would serve as an excellent resource for medical students who would appreciate a deeper understanding of head and neck anatomy. The author has done an excellent job of consolidating material from Dr. Netter and presenting it in a fresh format with much useful adjunct information.
Features: While providing readers with important images from the Netter Collection, the book supplements the art with important factual information teaching and explaining anatomic details. It marries form with function. While not at the level of a complete anatomy textbook, this serves as a worthy primary source for students, and would also be an excellent resource in the dissection laboratory. The additional factual information is concise, complete, and easily accessible. Of particular excellence is the clinical correlation section found at the end of each regionally organized chapter. The images (many clinical) here are very helpful and assist students in solidifying the anatomic concepts. It provides a memorable schema for the student to frame information. If there is any glaring shortcoming, it would likely be the compact size of the book. With all the outlines and tables, this book would be a bit less crowded given more space.
Assessment: This is an excellent resource for dental students. Since students are typically required to purchase an anatomy atlas, this seems like a good all-around resource. It is packed with useful information, and has excellent corresponding images. The clinical correlations help with the mastery of complex material, and will likely be a useful resource for many years following graduation. I highly recommend it, and will be steering my dental students toward it.
