Past Reviews of Oral Biology Text
Past Reviews of H&N Textbook
Amazing! This book nicely covers the head and neck, the chapters are well structured. The pictures are amazing, the clarity of the pictures and labels are superb. At the start of every chapter there is a key terms table that explains new anatomical words, which I found helpful as a first year.Also there are some questions and diagrams that you can label at the end of each chapters that reinforce the information. And the book comes with some flash card with answers on the back, great for revising
Great! This book is very good! There are so many diagrams and great information. It is very easy to follow along with to learn the material.
Brilliant Book. I thought this was a fantastic book on head and neck anatomy. It covers every aspect including: surface anatomy, osteology, TMJ, vascular system, lymphatics etc. The clarity of the pictures are fantastic. There are a good size and everything is in color so it is easier to understand. The labels are very clear. As a dental student I found that this has helped me greatly and would recommend it highly.
Good textbook for Dental Hygienist/Hygiene Student This book is descriptive and shows several pictures demonstrating the areas a hygienist is required to know. I would definitely recommend this textbook to hygiene students.
One of the most used books of the semester
This is an excellent text for learning about the anatomy of the head. This is an excellent text for learning about the anatomy of the head and neck. I recommend it to anyone who studies this topic. The illustrations are exceptional and the text is easy to follow.
This is an easy-to-use introduction to foundational embryology and anatomy along with the basic body systems affecting dentistry. Chapters include images that you will color and connect with corresponding labels, and each image includes questions for self-testing and comprehension. Coverage includes the body systems, orofacial anatomy, dentition, skeletal system, muscles, veins, glands, nerves, lymph nodes, and fasciae and spaces. This coloring book is the perfect way to help you identify anatomical landmarks and understand the complex interrelationships involved in dental anatomy and physiology.
Back and better than ever, it offers everything you need to succeed in your coursework, at certification, and in clinical practice. No other dental hygiene text incorporates the clinical skills, theory, and evidence-based practice in such an approachable way. All discussions — from foundational concepts to diagnosis to pain management — are presented within the context of a unique patient-centered model that takes the entire person into consideration. New to this fifth edition is a much more streamlined approach — one that stays focused on need-to-know information, yet also houses expanded content on things like alternative practice settings, pediatric care, risk assessment, and dental hygiene diagnosis to give you added context when needed. This edition is also filled with new modern illustrations and new clinical photos to augment your learning. If you want a better grasp of all the dental hygienist’s roles and responsibilities in today’s practice, they Darby and Walsh’s renowned text is a must-have.
An essential dental resource that goes beyond education! It’s designed for both students and practitioners. This new edition defines over 10,000 terms on dynamic areas of dentistry, including materials, imaging, surgery, orthodontics, pain control, and more. Throughout the text, over 300 illustrations address new innovations, research, technology, and products in the field, and extensive appendices provide quick access to the information you will use every day. Plus, a free companion website contains more than 5,000 audio pronunciations, 500 additional images, videos, and animations to help illustrate key concepts.
