Review from previous edition: "This book is a valuable addition to the bookshelf for anyone interested in dentistry beyond what happens directly between dentist and patient... A concise summary of dental public health is never an easy thing to produce and the authors are to be congratulatedfor a well-constructed and readable book." --Dental Update - May 2003
