5.0 out of 5 stars.  Relearning important lessons, March 26, 2017
By A Customer
Great book; it is a reminder that we as dentists need to focus on details of health history; what we glossed over in the past is not acceptable today. When I was Pediatric rotation in dental school if we did NOT sign off on Hx Review I got an F. This got my attention and it is the one lesson I learned
well from dental school. This reminds me to be even more attentive to stress risks of patients.
