Published Reviews


    "The author's stated goal for this book was to provide to general practitioners all the information required to be able to practise good dentistry. She has accomplished her goal exceptionally well. The book covers many topics of great value to a general practice veterinarian without any attempt to teach advanced procedures that could quickly get a non-specialist into trouble...It is a relatively easy read. The layout is logical, the illustrations are of very good quality, and the text is enhanced by over 100 excellent quality color photos and radiographs...Overall, the information presented is very accurate and current...This book is highly recommended (and at US $67.95, is a good value) for general practitioners seeking to improve their knowledge of veterinary dentistry and it has several topics of interest even for some readers that are more advanced in their training."
