This is a very unusual book to come from the pen of a dentist. It is also unusual and delightful to follow the logical, forward thinking of a writer who is so modest that he states in the preface "This monograph on psychobiology in dentistry has many limitations, the chief one being the incompetence of the author." Every dentist and physician can read this book with interest and profit. It marks the beginning of a correlation of dentistry with psychosomatic medicine, and the author presents an excellent approach to the recognition that dentists can profit greatly through at least some understanding of the underlying dynamic psychology of his patients. The book is well written. It has a good index and an excellent bibliography.
