The book with its Power Point lecture slides and test items or teachers and its many learning exercises was designed or instructors o dental anatomy courses as a teaching manual during lectures, discussion periods, and laboratory sessions, as well as during early clinical experiences. It is also use ul as a reference in the dental office.
