Comments from previous edition
The text is very pragmatic and systematic. It promotes assessment and realistic treatment options rather than focussing on elaborate instrumentation. The authors are also prepared to recognise and outline that in many instances ‘expert’ views differ at many stages in the treatment of the pulp. Nonetheless they offer sensible ‘best practice’ routes through these often conflicting approaches.
Dr Adrian Jowett, School of Clinical Dentistry, University of Sheffield
I found the book very easy to read and it is well thought out in terms of flow and the order of each chapter. The authors have an excellent grasp of the literature and the book is sufficiently evidence based.
Dr Phillip Tomson, Birmingham School of Dentistry, Birmingham
The list of topics covered in this excellent book is comprehensive. I cannot think of any significant omissions. The balance of the book seems to be entirely appropriate. I found the style excellent and there were copious, clear illustrations and the general appearance and quality is very good.
This book is relevant for undergraduate and postgraduate curricula in UK dental schools. The subject of endodontics (or endodontology) has significantly expanded in recent years and so the scope of endodontics that a dental student should grasp has expanded. This book serves, therefore, as an excellent text to compliment curricula. It would also be of use to general dental practitioners and specialists.
