`Review from previous edition An excellent book... written clearly by teachers who understand the specialised needs of dental students in anatomy.' International Dental Journal `This is a very practical and comprehensive book for dental anatomy, giving a complete overview of the subject, rather concise in certain difficult area of the subject like neuroanatomy, a good introductory book for dental student which I recommend strongly. ' Amazon review `Anatomy textbooks can often be overbearing with pages of either non-stop text or illustrations but this book has struck a good balance with providing the right ratio of information in various formats... By focusing on development and structure of head and neck anatomy this book is perfectly suited to its intended audience, the undergraduate dental student. It also acts as a good recap for the postgraduate clinician. Overall, I found this book very enjoyable and easy to read. As it is an extremely user-friendly text Id have no hesitation in recommending it to others and feel it would be well-placed in the collection of any aspiring dentist.' J. Flexen, for British Dental Journal, July 2013
