Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Robert A. Goepp, DDS, PhD (University of Chicago Medical Center)
Description: This is the fourth edition of a book dealing with a concise survey of clinical oral medicine. The book is relatively thin, so the book is light and easily handled in the clinical setting.
Purpose: These features compliment the book as an excellent clinical reference although it is not claimed to be such by the authors. The book presents concise, and to a good degree of depth, text covering oral diseases likely to be seen by practitioners treating the oral area.
Audience: The book is described by the authors as directed to dental undergraduate and postgraduate students apparently for educational purposes. In my opinion it indeed is a handy volume for students, but more so it is an excellent clinical reference for practicing dentists, both general and specialist.
Features: The book has a well-organized table of contents and a comprehensive index facilitating the quick location of information. Further, the subject information is very often complemented by good quality illustrations in color except for x-ray pictures. There are no references, thus development of information on a specific subject would require other sources. However, this fact supports my opinion that this book is a very good, handy clinical reference rather than an educational text, although it would also well serve students in the clinical setting.
Assessment: The substance of this text appears to be drawn from the two authors' clinical experiences. This book is a very good, direct, clinical reference useful for all types of dental practitioners.
