Dental Caries is a major new work on a subject of vital concern to all dentists. It builds on the work of two former books, Textbook of Clinical Cariology and Fluoride in Dentistry, to present a definitive resource on caries prevention and treatment. The management of dental caries is central to daily work in dental offices because caries is ubiquitous in all populations, lesion development continues lifelong and caries is the most common cause of tooth loss around the world.
The book’s logical structure consists of four parts, covering: The Disease; Diagnosis; Prevention, Non-Operative and Operative Treatment and Prognosis. It provides a clear understanding of the disease process, be it at an individual or population level. The Editors are joined by 28 expert authors who have contributed a wealth of chapters, ranging from the role of fluorides to restoring the tooth. Careful balance between prophylaxis and surgical intervention guides the reader through the maze of treatment decisions, while the breadth of the book reflects diverse, and sometimes controversial, opinion on dental caries.
Dental Caries is aimed at dental students and practitioners, and will be of value to dental hygienists and those involved with public health. Faculty and practice libraries will also wish to feature this authoritative book on their shelves.

'This text is generic enough to be used in most dental schools as a comprehensive textbook in cariology.
This text is the first text to really focus on the new paradigm shift towards more conservative management of caries.
The role of the diet in the etiology of caries and the management of caries through dietary controls were limited to a short discussion in chapter 14.
I would recommend this text for students, dentists and all professions allied to dentistry dealing with the management of dental decay.'
Dr Hardy Limeback, Head, Preventive Dentistry,
Faculty of Dentistry, University of Toronto
'This book, overall, is an excellent reference text for students of cariology, whether they be predoctorals, graduate students, faculty, or practitioners.
Again, I congratulate the editors and the authors who contributed to this book. It is one that all the students of cariology will refer to for the forseeable future.'

Community Dentistry and Oral Epidemiology
'This is a major new work, which should be of interest to all dentists...This is a clearly written and extremely well illustrated book with many colour plates in addition to monochrome illustrations and tables. The book will no doubt become essential reading for many.'
‘Dental caries is ubiquitous in all populations throughout the world and in the main cause of dental pain and tooth loss. Hence, this text represents a major contribution to the literature on a subject that is of central concern to all dentists.’
'This is a clearly written, comprehensive textbook...Highly illustrated throughout (there are more than 400 illustrations), graphs, tables, histograms, radiographs and color photographs are all used to facilitate the reader's grasp of key information'
'Though Dental Caries is aimed at dental students and practitioners, it will be of value to the whole dental team, the scientific evidence and experience presented facilitating the practice of evidence-based dental care in the fields of both cariology and restorative dentistry.'
Journal of Orthodontics
'It was a pleasure for the author to review this book. 'Dental Caries - The Disease and its Clinical Management' is the first edition of this authoritative text...a very welcome addition to the literature....The text is richly illustrated with clear diagrams, graphs, radiographs and colour clinical photographs of clinical restorative procedures.'
This text would be of interest to dental practitioners, undergraduate dental students, dental hygienists and dental therapists and is a 'must' for any dental library. It is well-written, richly illustrated and very well referenced. The author cannot do justice to this excellent book in a short review such as this, and he is of the opinion that, for its price, this tome represents excellent value'
