Book Description

January 3, 2011 1437717306 978-1437717303 3
Featuring detailed illustrations and full-color photographs, Illustrated Dental Embryology, Histology, and Anatomy, 3rd Edition, provides a complete look at dental anatomy, combined with dental embryology and histology and a review of dental structures. A clear, reader-friendly writing style helps you understand both basic science and clinical applications, putting the material into the context of everyday dental practice. Going beyond an introduction to anatomy, this book also covers developmental and cellular information in depth. Color photomicrographs make it easy to discern microscopic structures. Expert authors Mary Bath-Balogh and Margaret Fehrenbach provide an essential background in oral biology for dental professionals, including excellent preparation for the national boards.
  • Comprehensive coverage includes all the content needed for an introduction to the developmental, histological, and anatomical foundations of oral health.
  • High-quality anatomical illustrations and full-color clinical and microscopic photographs enhance your understanding.
  • An approachable writing style makes it easy to grasp and learn to apply the material.
  • A logical organization separates the book into four units for easier understanding: (1) an introduction to dental structures, (2) dental embryology, (3) dental histology, and (4) dental anatomy.
  • Summary tables and boxes provide quick, easy-to-read summaries of concepts and procedures and serve as useful review and study tools.
  • Clinical Considerations boxes relate abstract-seeming biological concepts to everyday clinical practice.
  • Learning outcomes at the beginning of each chapter clearly identify the information you are expected to absorb.
  • Key terms open each chapter, accompanied by phonetic pronunciations, and are highlighted within the text
  • A glossary provides a quick and handy way to look up terminology.
  • A bibliography lists resource citations for further research and study.

    Editorial Reviews


    Comprehensive review ... provides the reader with an applied approach to the subject, something very important for understanding the significance of different structures... Book also would serve as a valuable reference in preparation for standardized examinations at all levels of dentistry.  Journal of the American Dental Association

    ...over 700 color photographs and illustrations... contains numerous boxes of information and tables that describe in more detail specific dental conditions... The dental anatomy unit is also a highlight of the text...The website is beneficial to both the instructor and student.  Journal of Dental Hygiene

    ....Complete understanding of the subject matter.... It would also make a valuable resource in a dental office and could easily be used for patient education or as a reference because of its outstanding illustrations. Journal of Dental Hygiene

    Its target audience is mainly students; however, the ease of read and clarity of discussions makes it a reference source for clinicians as well. Although not a great deal has changed from the previous version, the authors' revisions have made the book a more dynamic resource, cementing it as an essential book for student. British Dental Journal

    4.0 out of 5 stars binding September 23, 2013
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    I think that this book is completly well done, the ilustrations are superb as well as the explanations and the only thing that I founded wrong is the binding of the sheets. It is very easy that they get loose. That is a shame. Thank you.

    2.0 out of 5 stars the binding is not good at all September 1, 2013
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    The book itself is fine, very easy to read, However I uncovered my brand new book straight out of the package from amazon and opened it and literally within 30 minutes the binding pulled out for my entire second chapter! so now i have a whole chapter that has come loose from the book and the pages are all individuals. If you are required to get this book for school be very careful with it as the glue in the binding for my book was VERY weak. Now it could just have been my book but be aware of this as you read and when you purchase.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Great book but binding needs serious attention.... December 11, 2013
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    Great book but the binding is a big issue during the first week of DH class the book started falling apart, pages were falling out. I had to take it to staples and have it spiral bound for $7 and so did most of my classmates. This book breaks down every tooth and provides flash cards to use. I strongly recommend before you start Dental Anatomy class you try to get a grip on tooth anatomy. It is challenging, premolars are especially difficult. Get your numbering down for each tooth and look for ways to be able to identify it. Start with Centrals, Laterals, premolars and molars.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Some false info October 18, 2011
    So i had to order this book for class, but only two months in we have found two mistakes, such as mismatched Dental pictures with disturbances(p. 56,57), and definitions (appositional/interstitial pg. 23, which contradict its own definitions in the back of the text.) Other than that pretty helpful book!

    2.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality Binding and Content April 27, 2014
    By sarah
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    I bought this book for my Dental Histology and Embryology class, within a week or two of light use the binding started falling a part. In addition to that I found a lot of typos and small errors throughout the book. The information in the book wasn't explained very well either. Overall, I felt very disappointed with the quality of this textbook. The work book that goes a long with it was even worse with a lot of problems with the crosswords (not enough or too many boxes, etc.)

    The diagrams were great, however.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy!!!!!!! February 16, 2014
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    I bought this book because it was required for the Dental Hygiene program. I received it in due time; however, the binding was so poor that it was falling apart he minute I opened it. Thus, I exchanged it for a new one leaving a feedback to the seller so that they knew what the reason for the return was and could make sure that it was not repeated. No apology or acknowledgement from the seller but I did receive a second book several days later. Again the binding was unacceptable and the pages fell out of the book as soon as I opened it! I wrote another feedback to the seller expecting some kind of acknowledgement-nothing again. I have not returned the book this time because I simply did not have the time and needed it for my studies. However, it has now completely falling apart and is a hassle to use!
