5.0 out of 5 stars.  Great book for anyone managing patients with diabetes, July 16, 2014
By Fotinos S. Panagakos
I have known Dr Lamster for many years. He is one of the most driven, passionate individuals when it comes to the subject of diabetes and oral health. This book is a reflection of this drive and passion. Dr Lamster and his co-authors have written a book that is captures all of the necessary information for a health professional to not only understand the intimate relationship between oral health and diabetes, but how to manage these patients in a collaborative manner. The book is suitable for anyone in the health professional field who manages patients with diabetes. I highly recommend it.
