Human Anatomy : Regional And Clinical Including Embryology And Genetics For Dental Students, 3rd Edition
About the Book
This new edition has been designed in accordance with the latest syllabus prescribed by the Dental Council of India. A new chapter in the beginning, devoted to Brain, Cervical Spinal nerves, Cranial nerves and Ventricles of brain has been added. The branches of the Cervical nerves make their appearance in different regions of neck and their presence can be better understood with prior knowledge. Since the dental student is predominantly interested in the anatomy of in supratemporal fossa and submandibular region, these regions have been built up from deep to superficial aspect in a reconstructive manner. The carotid triangle which feeds these regions in similarly dealt with. A chapter on general embryology having a concise, simplified account is an added feature for the convenience of students.
Anatomy has been made interesting and some of it easy to understand by referring to its clinical applications. Detailed diagrammatic representation of facts is a special feature. Examination should be an extension of teaching and so teaching should be based on examination as far as the students are concerned. This book contains much of what most examiners expect from the students. I hope this student friendly edition will be a great help to students of dentistry.
