Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Lia Kosmidou, DDS, MS (University of Chicago Medical Center)
Description: This is the first English edition of a book in oral biology. The first part describes in summary more general aspects of body tissues, whereas the second part more specifically deals with aspects related with the oral cavity.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide the dental profession with a book that represents an overview of the fundamental principles that constitute the science of oral biology. There is no diagnosis and treatment without a clear understanding of the pathophysiology of the systems in question. In that respect, the book largely meets its overall objective.
Audience: This book is targeted for undergraduate, postgraduate dental students and practitioners as a reference and a guide.
Features: The book contains black-and-white illustrations, indexes, and bibliography consisting of older and more recent references. Color illustrations would be helpful.
Assessment: This is a useful book for students who are trying to develop the knowledge needed for practicing the dental profession. It is also for experienced practitioners who need to keep up-to-date with the new developments in oral biology and their clinical impact.
