4.0 out of 5 stars.  Dental duplicating material, November 19, 2008
By Dr. S. D
As a dental professional that holds a certificate in Dental Therapy and a BSc in Dentistry(DDS), working in the dental field for the past 14 years. I found this book very interested. I must be honest in saying I have not complete reading the entire book. From what I covered, it is very detailed, it photos, advantages and disadvantages of selected materials, etc, which enhanced understanding. I think it is up to date with the dental materials that are so ever changing. I will reccommend this book for dental students and dental professionals.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  Concise , Thorough and Reader Friendly!, April 30, 2003
By Travel Enthusiast (International)
This book is "reader friendly!" It is excellent as both a reference book and a study tool. The explanations are clear and concise along with the accomplying graphs, charts and photographs. All combine perfectly to enhance ones understanding and comprehension of the topic. It delves into the biochemical aspects, biocompatability and application of dental materials. Each chapter is accompanied by a glossary of terms, discussion questions, study questions and a thorough list of recommended readings. After reading this book, you should have no problems of understanding and working with dental materials. The author even offers a historical perspective on older, outdated dental materials as well as the future of dental materials. I like the author's style of writing and his ability to organize themes in a logical manner. (I actually came across this book by accident in my dental school's library after being somewhat disappointed by Ferracane's book that I had been using for school. It is a good book, but it just did not quite reach the depth of explanation required to pass my exams.)

This book is "reader friendly!" It is excellent as both a reference book and a study tool. The explanations are clear and concise, as are the accomplying graphs, charts and photographs. Each chapter is accompanied by a glossary of terms, discussion questions, study questions and a thorough list of recommended readings. It delves into the biochemical aspects, biocompatability and application of all dental materials. All combine perfectly to enhance ones understanding and comprehension of the topic. The author even offers a historical perspective on older, outdated dental materials as well as the future of dental materials. I like the author's style of writing and his ability to organize themes in a logical manner. After reading this book, you should have no problems of understanding and working with dental materials. (I actually came across this book by accident in my dental school's library after being somewhat disappointed by Ferracane's book that I had been using for school. It is a good book too, but it just did not quite reach the depth of explanation required for my test exams.)
