Reviews

"The sixth edition of Contemporary Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is a glossy hardback billing itself as a comprehensive description of the basic surgical procedures performed in general practice, as well as the more advanced and complex surgical management of patients referred to a specialist hospital department...On the whole I think that although this book could not be considered a definitive text, this fantastically illustrated guide would certainly make a great addition to any budding maxillofacial surgeon's library."

British Dental Journal, July 2013

"The book provides suitable detail on the foundation technique of evaluation, diagnosis, and medical management, which makes immediate clinical application possible."
