"Overall, I found this book expressly informative. It is not overly technical and therefore easily understood. I like the case-based approach as it helps in retaining the information given. These cases can easily be applied to every day clinical scenarios within oral and maxillofacial surgery and are therefore great learning tools. I would most definitely recommend this book."  Reviewed by: N.Galligan, British Dental Journal   Date: Jan 2015
