First published over thirty years ago, this book has become the established introductory textbook for dental students. Carefully structured to provide a very wide range of information in appropriate depth, "Principles of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery" is particularly valued for its accessibility and reader-friendly style. The text is further expanded and clarified throughout by a large number of illustrations. The new fifth edition has been completely updated to include the established pattern of maxillofacial surgery within the essential roots of undergraduate dental education and to reflect advances in the speciality including implants, anxiety management and the management of traumatic injuries, tumours and facial deformities.


"I must recommend this book to every undergraduate and House Officer. It is a sensible book, which will provide a firm grounding in our discipline. My copy will sit in my briefcase and be brought out whenever I have undergraduate in clinic."International Journal of Paediatric Dentistry "In conclusion, this is a good book and I anticipate that it may become the standard textbook in many university departments. I will certainly be adding it to the reading list in my own department...Many general practitioners may also wish to have it available in their practices as an up-to-date reference textbook."British Dental Journal From reviews of previous editions:"It is appreciated by students and teachers for its direct uncluttered advice... This edition continues in the same excellent mould of its two predecessors...""This is an excellent undergraduate textbook...well-illustrated, concise and clear.' Journal of Dentistry
