The new edition of this highly successful book continues to offer readers everything they require to gain a full understanding of microbiology as it relates to modern dental practice.

Clearly written and in full colour throughout, the book uniquely divides the subject of microbiology into six discrete sections to relate the many aspects of microbiology for dental practice in a logical, easy-to-understand manner.

The first part of the book covers the principles of general microbiology and is followed by a clear and straightforward account of basic immunology. The volume then addresses mechanisms of disease, concentrating clearly on the micro-organisms that are relevant to the dentist. The major infections of each organ system are discussed as they relate to dental practice together with a detailed exploration of oral microbiology. The book finally concludes with a practical discussion of cross-infection and control.

The rich combination of easy-to-read text together with the extensive artwork programme continues to make Essential Microbiology for Dentistry the first choice of microbiology textbook for many students of dentistry worldwide.

Published Reviews
All relevant topics have been covered. In fact, this is a more comprehensive book than Essentials of Microbiology for Dental Students published by OUP which I own.

I find myself trying to say that the book goes into too much depth but if you were to adhere strictly to the BDS curriculum you would find a place for the entire contents, i.e. there is every chance that any part of this book could appear in a BDS exam. In addition, the book touches on other areas outwith microbiology - oral medicine, immunology, etc. This is a very good feature as it widens the readers' perspective.

After comparing this book to the Oxford equivalent I would certainly recommend the Churchill-Livingston version. Why? Because of the assessments at the end of chapters, the more comprehensive index and the inclusion of a glossary. In addition, although the content is similar in both books, the Churchill-Livingston version is not only more detailed, it has been laid out in shorter chapters which is better for revision.

Lecturers need to know that this is a better book than the Oxford equivalent because their reading list recommendation, in my view, is what influences students most when buying a book when they are similarly priced.

This text covers clinically-related material featured in Bagg, et al. and the more basic science covered in Marsh and Martin, two texts which we have always recommend. The combination offered here makes for a very comprehensive package which I feel is better for our Oral Science and Medicine course.

Dr John W Smalley, Senior Lecturer in Dental Science, The University of Liverpool, September 2008

The book is very well ordered, easy to read and logically put together making quite a tough subject quite enjoyable to read. This book has a glossary, review questions at the end of each chapter and an end of chapter summary - excellent!
