Very well written April 24, 2011
While I bought this textbook about a year ago, I only just finished reading most of it.
It's very well written. It's concise without missing anything.
Frankly, there's nothing that I can think to add or remove to this regarding the standard of care for pediatric dentistry.
This is the perfect textbook for dentists interested in understanding the standard of care, the protocols of treating kids, and the scientific rationale behind it.
The only possible complaint is that this isn't equivalent to a pediatric residency (however, no book would be).
