" Dental Caries: The Disease and its Clinical Management is a must for academics, specialists and postgraduates interested in cariology and for those clinicians for whom management of dental caries plays a significant part of their daily practice." ( Dental Update, November 2015) "This book, which is clear and illustrated in colour, describes the causes of dental decay and its progression through the tooth in depth. Emphasis is placed upon the prevention as well as early diagnosis so that decay can be arrested in early stages. Methods of prevention from both scientific and practical aspects are covered, which makes this book ideal for undergraduate students as well as dental nurses, dental hygienists and dental therapists."
