Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Eric Daryl Levine, DDS (University of Maryland)
Description: This is an update to a long standing introduction to operative dentistry.
Purpose: The book provides an overview for historical background and for the understanding of materials used in the restorations introduced in later chapters. A broad range of techniques is shown, including some that may be considered outdated as well as emerging technologies. The result is a sound basis for beginning a practice in restorative dentistry.
Audience: As an overview and introduction, the book meets the needs of the predoctoral dental student.
Features: The broad range of topics includes areas outside the discipline of operative dentistry. A review of materials science helps in understanding how a material's requirements shape restorative principles. The use of clinical photography assists in demonstrating key points in restorative techniques.
Assessment: This is an important update to an authoritative book in operative dentistry.
