    Clinical Oral Science includes twenty chapters, some of them based on articles previously published in the British Dental Journal. Completely up-to-date, this new text fills the need for new texts to cover recent changes in the dental curriculum.
    Clinical Oral Science is also suitable for countries where the postgraduate examinations are based on the British system: e.g. South East Asia, South Africa.
