Published Reviews

"Radiography and Radiology for Dental Nurses by Eric Whaites is an excellent resource for Dental Nurses undertaking the post qualification in Dental Radiography, and also for other professions complementary to dentistry." Dental Update, January / February 2006

 

"I was delighted to be asked by Vital to review this splendid book by Eric Whaites. I believe that this is an impressive book which is great for any DCP who is working towards any qualification in radiography and radiology. I also would definitely recommend this book to any DCP for continuing professional development (CPD) and for a reference book if they are directly or indirectly involved in the taking or processing of radiographs. I definitely found this book very informative and it makes the subject material more enjoyable to learn. I would highly recommend this book to all dental team members and believe it is a vital addition to any practice bookshelf."Vital Magazine
