Book Description

14 Nov 2012 Elsevier Insights
While most books on dentistry describe the clinical and medical procedures involved, this book expands the field to examine the role of dentistry and teeth in everything from biology to biography. This book offers facts and figures regarding famous historical figures, such as John Hunter, Dr Crippen, Doc Holliday, and Paul Revere, exploring how their connections to dentistry shaped them, as well as the story of the two young dentists who discovered the principles of general anaesthesia. Other chapters focus on the amazing ranges of teeth in animals, from the teeth in piranhas to the tusks and ivory of elephants and narwhals, looking at their biological and cultural significance. The importance of teeth in understanding the evolution of humans and in revolutionizing the study of archaeology is also evaluated. This book is appropriate for dentists, medical and dentistry students, and non-specialists to introduce the myriad interesting aspects relating to teeth. It includes well-illustrated and thoroughly explained examples and anecdotes. It presents both popular and little-known instances of teeth's importance in history. It is written in an engaging tone appropriate for academics and the wider public.

Review

"While most books on dentistry describe the clinical and medical procedures involved, this book expands the field to examine the role of dentistry and teeth in everything from biology to biography."--King's College Newsletter, June 2013 "This excellent book will appeal to dentists and non-dentists alike. It will provide dental historians with many ideas for research."--Dental History Magazine "From start to finish, it really is hard to put down. The book takes the reader through a whole host of interesting dentally relevant areas and is not rivaled in any other text out there."--British Dental Journal, April 27, 2013

Barry Berkovitz is a well known and highly respected teacher and reseacher in dental anatomy. He has written a number of well established text books on the subject. In Nothing but the Tooth he has made this knowledge accessible to the general reader with many human interest stories relating to the teeth. In short: the tooth, the whole tooth and nothing but the tooth!!
