“This book was a truly great read. The way the book is written ensures that all key aspects of periodontology and implatology are covered, while the content remains concise and to the point. The use of highlighted tables allows the reader to remember key information within the text, auch as the cliunical features of both chronic and aggressive periodontitis, with comparsion between the two types for easier differentiation. I found the use of case reports with clinical pictures to be very useful as ity helped visualise and conceptualise the information and also allowed the reader to apply the information to clinical situations that many arise in his or her career… I would recommend this book to any undergraduate student, as I think it would tuly help in their studies.”
