“In summary, this fantastic book would be a great addition to an under­graduate or general dental practitioner’s library, providing them with essential basic knowledge of dental implants, so they can educate their patients on the subject. Those wishing to become involved in dental implant provision will need to seek further reading from a core textbook.”  (British Dental Journal, 26 October 2013)
