More About This Textbook


Maybe this book should have been entitled "Wisdom Tooth", because it relates the author's determination to learn and grow with his advocation as a dentist. The reader will learn what is involved in becoming a dentist. The author clearly explains (with over 380 color photographs) how dental procedures are performed, how people can maintain a healthy mouth (and save money in dental bills) and why disease and deterioration occur. You'll learn how to avoid root canal treatment, how to avoid wearing dentures and how to avoid gum surgery. Also, important information is presented regarding the care of children's teeth and the need for orthodontics.
Controversies regarding mercury in "silver" fillings, vitamin and mineral supplements, HMO dentistry, and dental implants are explained.
This is a great book for students and health professionals who are interested in science and its relationship to the human body.
This book will help you understand First Class Dental Care.
