"(This book) contains much universal and valuable information for all GDPs irrespective of the country in which they practise. The chapters on surgical extractions, surgical management of impacted third molar teeth and pre-prosthetic oral surgery would be useful for pre-finals undergraduates, newly qualified dentists and dentists wanting to revise their techniques as part of their general continuing professional development (CPD) requirements." bdanews, December 2006
