This deals only with diseases of the pulp, gingivae and peridental membrane and fits the teaching program in many dental schools. This fact and the general excellence of the text account for the popularity of the first edition. The section on pulp diseases and root canal treatment is unusually complete and authoritative; the part on pyorrhea is least satisfactory. The brief historical reviews are unusually complete and enlightening. The text is replete with formulas and prescrip- tions where drug treatment is indicated. The disease classifications are redundant and in places confusing, as are also disease names. Dental students and dentists will find this to be a useful aid in the practice of their art.
