Suitable for students and practitioners alike, the Handbook of Paediatric Dentistry is a concise, practical and highly illustrated guide to the day-to-day management of child dental patients.
This book covers a lot of ground, is easy to navigate, points you elsewhere if you need more detail, and is enjoyable to read as well. Whether you are an undergraduate, a postgraduate or a general dental practitioner, this would be a useful text to have close at hand. Primary Dental Care, April 2010
On re-reading this book (after initially using it as an undergraduate on clinic) I felt the following points were apparent: good content and use of colour clinical photos with a nice layout and formatting of text, good use of diagrams and colour to highlight the text, a comprehensive section on eruption dates, etc. v useful and, although not exhaustive, the ortho chapters were also useful for quick reference.

Good read and easy to follow. Good tables and flowcharts in case of emergencies, traumas, abscesses, etc. Good to have if you don't see too many kids. Amazon, Oct 2011
Comments about the second edition
On page xiii, Preface, [a comment] is quite meaningful to all of us. I write it here for your reference: 'A lot of [golf] players say you can't play that course. That's a bunch of junk. A good player can play any course. You adapt your game to the golf course. You don't adapt the course to your game'. This is the spirit of dentistry. Can anyone of us take a few minutes to think 'What's the feeling of visiting a dentist in childhood, especially the first time? One changed my life and gave me the chance of reading this book. So, it is a good book. Keep it! Anon, Amazon.co.uk
The book provides many clear illustrations that are easily understood and very useful for practice. There is a special chapter talking about paedo-endodontics and a huge chapter on dental trauma which gives us references to manage the case should we ever meet one.

This book is really good especially for dentists in Australasia. I found this book to be concise and straight to the point. It is clinically focussed. Definitely recommended for the general dentist. Amazon.com
