Comments about previous edition:

This is a very informative textbook which I would definitely recommend and have learnt from. I wish I had known about it and read it on my undergraduate course - at the time I had not realised that there was such a concise book on the subject at a suitable level, interesting and easy to read!

This book should give people the confidence and encouragement to perform more endodontic procedures.

Georgina Baker, PG Student, Eastman Dental Institute, UK

Overall, an EXCELLENT and concise endodontic book for all clinicians of varying backgrounds and experience. I would highly recommend it!

Miss Zahra Hussain, PG Student, Eastman Dental Institute, UK

Harty's Endodontics in Clinical Practice is an excellent text for both the undergraduate dental student and the busy general dental practitioner. Its logical, evidence-based chapters and concise approach progress through the course of endodontic treatment with the aid of excellent diagrams, radiographs and photographs, giving the reader a clear and easy explanation as to the principles of root canal treatment, the essentials of periradicular surgery and the management of traumatic injuries. This is an excellent reference text for a continually evolving field.

Tony Preston, Senior Lecturer in Endodontics, Liverpool, UK

'With Endodontics now a recognised specialty within the UK, this book has established itself as the definitive text on the subject for the undergraduate dentist. The meticulous detail and excellent editing ensure there is little in the book to be criticised.'

Student, MAD Magazine - Barts and The London Students' Association, June 2004
