The book also discusses drugs, techniques, and instruments of historical interest as well as a number of people who have made important contributions to dentistry. The principal muscles, nerves, arteries, veins, foramina, and sinuses of the head and neck together with illustrations are grouped together as appendices: also included is a further reading list, and a list of common symbols and abbreviations. A key feature of this book is the recommended web links for over 100 entries, which are accessed and kept up to date via the Dictionary of Dentistry companion website.
