Ten Cate’s Oral Histology 8th Edition PDF
Also, focus is on learning and understanding concepts rather than on memorization of detail, particularly numerical values. Thus dental hygienists, medical students, and undergraduate and graduate dental students will all find a degree of coverage suited for their respective needs. Finally, as for the previous edition, a major objective is to sensitize students to the concept that, in addition to being pertinent to clinical practice, better understanding of the development and biology of oral tissues is expected to engender novel therapeutic approaches based on biologics that will likely be used by oral health practitioners in the foreseeable future.
The present edition builds on material from previous editions prepared over the years by various contributors. I am most grateful to P. Mark Bartold, Paolo Bianco, Anne C. Dale, Jack G. Dale, Dale R. Eisenmann, Donald H. Enlow, Michael W. Finkelstein, Eric Freeman, Arthur R. Hand, Stéphane Roy, Paul T. Sharpe, Martha J. Somerman, Christopher A. Squier, Calvin D. Torneck, and S. William Whitson for their excellent coverage of their respective subject matter. Particular recognition goes to Dr. A. Richard Ten Cate for having created over 30 years ago a didactic style that is still fully relevant today and that has helped to train several classes of oral health practitioners.
