"This book encompasses four major disciplines of dentistry in 16 easy to read, well laid out chapters. Like the previous editions each chapter finishes of with a self-assessment section in the form MCQs, extended matching questions, case reports and oral exam questions to complement the setup of most undergraduate and post-graduate examinations. this section will be valuable to students as it offers them feedback on their performance in that particular subject or chapter. In opinion the oral medicine and pathology chapters excel in covering a topic most of us found challenging at undergraduate level...The broad coverage of topics within this edition will appeal to many students; however, this book should be viewed as a complement to existing textbooks and should not be seen as a replacement alternative. With that in mind, it will maintain itself as an invaluable study aid for many students and will find its place in many undergraduate and post-graduate students' bookshelves."

"The book provides a fantastic blend of core teaching and texts from the relevant disciplines, to allow students the opportunity to gain not only core knowledge but also the ability to approach clinical problem solving logically. The volume also conditions the student to make sensible, safe and informed decisions about patient management, not only for BDS/BChD/MFDS finals but also in the field of primary dental care. This knowledge, and informed decision making, not only aids the ability to rationalise clinical scenarios, but also promotes self appraisal and knowledge of when to refer to specialist colleagues."

The Master Dentistry series provides a good overview of the subject areas and I found them particularly useful during exam times. The text is appropriately supplemented with great diagrams and the layout of the books makes all the subject areas easy to access and find.
At the end of each chapter there are self assessment questions which were really useful and would aid any student's learning. Each chapter has a helpful overview and learning objectives are provided throughout each chapter.
The books give a great summary of all the subject areas they cover but need to be used in conjunction with a more detailed textbook. I used them quite often if I didn't understand a certain part of a lecture as the wording is easy to understand and is uncomplicated. They're a must for any dental student's bookshelf!
