From Booknews
Describes features of periodontal disease and current methods of treatment for senior undergraduate dental students. Since it deals with management of periodontal diseases from a biological basis and within a wider context of dental care, this will also be useful as a reference for general dental practitioners and hygienists. Jenkins is a consultant in periodontics at Glasgow Dental Hospital and School, and an honorary senior lecturer at the University of Glasgow. Allan is a consultant in restorative dentistry at Dundee Dental Hospital and School, and an honorary senior lecturer at the University of Dundee. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
