Radiology for the dental professionals 9th Edition Ebook PDF
Radiology for the dental professionals 9th Edition Ebook PDF As we sit here planning the ninth edition of this textbook we are overwhelmed by the changes in dental radiology since the first edition was published. We have grown from a textbook consisting of nine chapters and 160pages to our present textbook of 25 Chapters and over 500 pages with an
accompanying Study Guide and Instructor’s Resource Manual.
In addition, this text is currently augmented by a related computer resource.

and hope to reflect this in the current edition of our textbook.
Once again, we have some words of thanks for our families and colleagues
who have encouraged and helped us in preparing the ninth edition. We could

NYU, Drs. Rajinder Jain, Alan Friedman, Debra Ferraiolo, Shailesh Kottal,
Lewis Lampert, Milton Palet and our chairperson Dr. Joan Phelan. A special
recognition goes to the President of New York University, Dr. John Sexton;
the former Dean of the College of Dentistry and present Executive Vice President of the University, Michael C.
Alfano; the Dean of New York University’s
College of Dentistry, Charles N. Bertolami; and the Vice Dean of New York
University’s College of Dentistry, Richard Vogel, for creating an academic
environment that encourages and supports faculty scholarship.
Finally, to our spouses Eleanor Frommer and John Paul Savage, without
whose encouragement, patience, and support this project could not have been
