    Published Reviews "This book is valuable especially for those in undergraduate years and forms a quick reference book for those in postgraduate training in oral surgery." V. Sivarajasingham, British Dental Journal, November 2003
    book comprehensively covers most aspects of oral surgery. The four authors and various contributors bring a great deal of knowledge and interest to its compilation, making it a very eaasy textbook to read.
    Overall this is a book which should be recommended to undergraduates, house officers and senior house officers. This is also a textbook which some GDP's may wish to purchase for the practice library." Dr Karim Jaafary, Dental Practice, September 2003
    latest textbook covers both oral and general surgery...a sound textbook for undergraduate dental students which is clearly presented at a suitable level. It would also serve as a good basic text for those embarking in a postgraduate career in oral surgery/surgical dentistry." Instructor, University Dental Hospital of Manchester, Dental Update, April 2004
