This textbook, written entirely by dental personnel, is intended as a reference work for the undergraduate dental student. The first five chapters deal with surgical principles, techniques, bacteriology, infections, hemorrhage, and shock. They emphasize fundamental surgical teachings and are sound. Additional chapters describing abnormalities and diseases of the oral cavity are informative and worthwhile. However, the complicated surgical problems mentioned in the chapters on wounds and injuries of the soft tissues of the face, the surgical aspects of the cleft lip and cleft palate, and complicated malignant oral tumors are beyond the scope of the dental student and dental surgeon.
