  • "This textbook, aimed at undergraduate students, suits its purpoise perfectly, as it is straightforward and easy to understand...One of the best features of this book is the use of images and diagrams. There is a mixture of colour and monochrome images and they complement the text well. Not only do they aid understanding but they make the book more engaging...This book on the fundamental elements of dentistry is interesting, understandable and a comprehensive source of information for dental students."

    "This book, now written by Professor Antonio Nanci… is a classic and a core text on the subject. Indeed, Professor Ten Cate’s name is now virtually synonymous with the subject of oral histology."
