3 out of 5 stars A book for basic concept of periodontics, October 8, 2000
  Reviewer: popoc from Taipei, Taiwan

I read the book when I was a 4 grade student in Dental School. The book was included lots of concepts of immunology and biochemistry, and the clinical practices was relatively rare.. I think this book is suitable for the basis of periodontal research, but not for dental clinician. However, I had learned lots of knowledge about cell kinetics about periodontics from the book. So I recommended this book to you who are interested in periodontics.
