Editorial Reviews

"Essential Dental Public Health sets out to introduce dental students to the discipline. It is a cracking little book and will be invaluable not only for undergraduates but also for professions complimentary to dentistry learning about dental public health. It will also be an excellentprimer for Masters students in the discipline who need to gain an overview before they embark on more detailed reading... This book invaluably fills a niche in the library. It will become a standard text for Dental Public Health in dental schools and would also be a very useful read for anybodywith an interest in the discipline." --Open Wide - 2003
