Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The book is clearly written...there is much to commend this book for those involved with dental radiography."
Dental Update, 2009
Vera Ann Smith
This book demonstrates in great detail the fundamental technique for taking intraoral and extraoral films, and processing, developing, and interpreting x-rays. This is the third edition; the second edition was printed 1993. The intent of the authors is to update students and dental auxiliaries in the proper techniques in the art of dental imaging. Instructors will find the update extremely useful in training students for the ever-changing modalities. These are worthy objectives. This book contains 323 pages of clear, concise, and descriptive material; this, by definition, meets the authors' objectives. It is written primarily for students and dental auxiliaries, according to the authors; and in my judgment it is appropriate for those who need to improve their technique. I believe the authors (two dentists, a hygienist, and a certified dental assistant) are all credible authorities on the subject matter. All authors are currently working in the field of continued dental education. This book is divided into thirteen chapters, and operator and patient protection issues are covered only briefly. The main focus is intraoral radiographic techniques. The paralleling periapical technique is emphasized, with a focus on minimizing shape distortion and reducing exposure to patient's head and neck. The latest techniques in digital imaging and implantology are outlined. The study question at the end of each chapter is very helpful. There are five key features in this book that will aid the student in studying: key terms, illustrations, study questions, glossary, and answers to study questions. The appearance of this book is good, the cover is composed of soft colors, most illustrationsare adequate. This book should be on the shelves of libraries, dental schools, and bookstores. Although I didn't read the first two editions, I think the third is needed because of the changing technology in dental imaging. This is an excellent book for the dental auxiliaries wishing to learn more about the dental imaging system and improving one technique. I think it will do well if it is priced reasonably.
Dawn McDaniel
This is the second edition of a thorough and practical training textbook for all areas of dental radiology. The first edition was published in 1989. The book meets the authors' objectives by uniquely arranging the contents in a sequence to coincide with most dental radiology programs, rather than in the chronological sequence of most other textbooks. This book would be exceptional for course directors and dental auxiliaries in training. It would also be useful for study before state board examinations. The arrangement of contents provides the reader with a clearer understanding and is easier to follow for learning technique, processing, anatomy, theory, history, and biological effects. Each chapter offers many detailed diagrams, photographs, and radiographs. Study questions are included at the end of each chapter for the reader to test his or her comprehension. This useful book is recommended. It presents information in a logical and practical format and is complete and comprehensive.
