I have done my best to collect a library of dental texts for use in the classes I teach. I am also a student of dental assisting, materials and procedures. This Guide is potentially useful to the student, but suffers some problems.

First, it does not explore *how* materials or processes operate. If a student understands the function of fluoride, for example, the various brands or forms of fluoride application can be more fully appreciated.

Second, exploring various but similar brands of reasonably identical products is redundant. There are (for example) ten brands of composite presented, each of which reads like a package insert, complete with marketing catchphrases. Ingredients are included, but not what their significance, structure or function might be.

Finally, there are errors in presentation. For example, the uneven use of the terms "conditioner", "etchant" or "acid etch". They are all the same, but that point is not made in the text.

This Guide needs more work (or other textbooks) to be made useful.
