    2-0 out of 5 stars A little disappointed
    The software seemed to crash a lot and I didn't get much help from the company. Once I got it to work (a few times) I could not practice any section I wanted from the one computer test they give.

    Also, when I took the real DAT yesterday, the real DAT computer format was much different than Kaplans. The screens, reading comprehension, and the important question review screen, etc. were not the same.

    Kaplan only gave me one computer test too. Their book cover seemed to imply 2 full tests! (I guess they are counting the paper one in the book (a little deceiving...so BEWARE of that).

    I could not print out questions from the computer and it was difficult to go through their review screens to get to the questions I missed. There are NO TOPICS for the qestions so it was hard reviewing a little bit more about the questions I missed in my college text books.

    One important thing was my scores on the real DAT were lower than my Kaplan scores. My overall was 18/19 PAT and my Kaplan was 21/22 PAT. If I were to do it again, I would depend more on my college text books.

    The text reviewed some sciences, and general math. Not bad, but not great. I found myself going to my college text books for more explainations.

    Overall, I don't think I can recommend it.

    Hope to see you in dental school in 2001 :)

    4-0 out of 5 stars Very Satisfied from Good Study Guide
    The Kaplan DAT book was a good study guide to use to prepare for the DAT - especially when compared to other brands. By studying mainly the review book, a few textbooks for reference, and the TopScore CD, I was able to perform very well on the exam.

    The Science section was very thorough and helped prepare me for what showed up on the exam. The Biology was heavy in detail which actually posed to be a problem - many of the areas which I spent time studying did not show up in great detail on the exam. But hey, better safe than sorry.

    The reading section was very accurate in mimicing the reading section on the exam. The math was close as well - TopScore did a better job with math questions however. The Kaplan book did cover some great math skills.

    The PAT is the only area where I wish the book worked more with. The DAT was much more difficult than I had expected - especially for angle ranking. I would suggest the more practice the better.

    Aside from the PAT (which still helped greatly), the book is a great buy. I recommend it for anyone willing to work hard for this exam.

    An added note, I performed much better on the DAT than the Kaplan exams. The book helps with keeping motivation high.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Canadian DAT read this review
    There are limited reference books for the Canadian DAT, which is quite different from the American DAT (the Cdn DAT has soap carving for manual dexterity testing and does not have organic chem and math on the exam).
    Primarily, I used the biological science, chem, reading comprehension and PAT sections for review and practice. The last time I learned the content in university was about 8 years ago, but I found that the biology and chem reviews were comprehensive enough and prepared me enough. However, I need to point out that this is a thinking test and questions on the exam are tricky and does not necessarily ask for straight memory work and when it is recall type questions, it tends to be obscure detail you wouldn't think you'd need to remember in such detail. The reading comprehension and PAT were helpful, but again, it doesn't give enough practice. I found the suggested approach to doing the PAT in this book was useful.
    I did not like the CD. Reading comprehension on the CD didn't do anything for me because it wasn't representative of the format (the reading selections were unusually short) and the rotating objects in the PAT section were not helpful to me, at least)
    My advice is to do more timed practice exams. Do as many as you can.
    As for the Canadian DAT, I also used practice exams from IQ Publications (not the greatest because there isn't much out there for the Canadian DAT market, but has decent practice exams). Their book on soap carving you should definitely get, but don't get their soap carving kit (the exacto knife is different than the one used in the actual exam), get the one from the Canadian Dental Association plus extra soap pieces.
    The Canadian DAT was a relatively difficult exam, but I did relatively well (I am competitive with same scores as the applicants who got into dental schools in Canada--the ones that gave entrance statistics anyways). My review came from this Kaplan book and intensive practice before the exam. Of course, don't forget practice, hard work, and discipline! I studied 3 - 4 months in advance, but I was busy with my daytime job. Probably studied only 1/2 to 1 hour weekdays, a little longer on weekends. Closer to the week before the exam, I studied the entire evening. Good luck!

    3-0 out of 5 stars Weak Biology Section!
    According to the guide at dentalschooladmission.com the biology section is weak and I agree since I have the Kaplan book! You need another guide for biology. Also, the CD test is not too representive of the DAT format but our choices are limited in software products.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Not worth the money
    I bought this book along with TopScore CD. I looked at the reviews and thought this is a wonderful book for preparation for DAT. Well, it is not even close. The content in this book is not enough for the real DAT, especially the biology part. Fortunately I found this out before the test and I had to postpone the test one week later than I scheduled. I bought the Schaum's Outline for Biology and Chemsitry (two review books) and studied those two books intensively in the last week before DAT. Here is my scores: Bio 22, Gen 28, Org 25. I do think the Schaum's Outlines saved me from a big failure. I am glad that I didn't trust this book. And Schaum's books are amazingly inexpensive. That can save you about 20 bucks. And I am not selling my used Kaplan book here because I don't think it's that useful. Good luck with your test! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A classic
    As a student, I grappled with the complexities of understanding the stomatognathic system. This book clarified so much for me that it became a standard reference. I recommend this book for anyone who is seeking mastery in the dental field.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Dr. Dawson sets the standard for "predictable" dentistry
    Dr. Dawson's text sets the standard for predictably understanding cause and effect relationship. Predictable, excellent dentistry requires a "global" view of cause and effect. For years, dentists have been taught to diagnose and treat symptoms. The majority of our teaching has been without respect to the temporomandibular joints. The TMJ's form a critical "pivotal" point for understanding occlusion, form and function. Dr. Dawson's work allows the reader to clearly understand WHY certain things occur. An understanding of the "why" allows the reader to move beyond simple repairative restorative dentistry --- to the point of being able to offer excellent, optimal long term stable dental care. Our patients are the final benefactors. Be prepared to read and reread, as this text does not flow like a best-selling novel. Instead, work one chapter at a time, as you uncover the mystery of form and function. Dr. Tom Orent 1000 Gems Seminars orent@headachepain.com ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars This is the only ortho book you need!
    I bought several other ortho books and all were a waste of money except this gem. As a practicing general dentist for 17 years I want to expand my services to include Ortho. In addition to attending a seminar series I wanted to read a great book for a foundation. This book is it!! It has everything from diagnosis, reading cephs, physiology of tooth movement, functional appliances, twin block theory and applications, straight wire, it even has computer applications and other cutting edge information and research. Yes, the 1000 pages are needed since this is a huge subject but I believe when I go to my practical course, whatever it may be, I will be very well prepared to learn all I can and then proceed to offer a quality service to my patient base.

    5-0 out of 5 stars TMJ and Vision
    I came upon this book in a very roundabout way ---- during the process of improving my vision by natural means of all things. What could eyesight and the TMJ possibly have in common? In my case, a great deal I was to discover. When I first started improving my vision naturally, I thought it was only about the eyes and did not appreciate the whole health aspect. I was in for many surprises and some confusion when I eventually began having referred pain and sensations in areas seemingly unconnected to the eyes. It didn't initially dawn on me that there was any relationship between these symptoms and my improving eyesight. Then I began to wonder, could there be a connection? I studied several books on natural vision improvement (Relearning to See --- RTS for short - and Better Eyesight are highly recommended) which made reference to blurred vision causing tight muscles and problems in many other areas of the body. Muscle groups affected can include such areas as the neck, shoulders, jaw, ears, cheeks and forehead. It soon became abundantly obvious that the symptoms I had been experiencing fit the reversal pattern of holistic healing. Suggestions were made in the RTS book to try some holistic healing treatments in conjunction with relearning the proper vision habits. One of several mentioned was TMJ treatment, yet the term had no significance to me at the time. Because of my neck and shoulder stiffness and pains, I opted for massage therapy sessions and obtained significant tension releases which the therapist also noticed. It turned out that the type of massage was myofascial release. I was intrigued to learn more on the Internet when I got home. The many website results that came up in my search about myofascial release were in relation to TMJ disorders. There was that term again. Bingo! It was like a piece of a puzzle falling into place. I chose to buy Dr. Uppgaard's book to find out more. I was amazed to read so many parallels and similar topics in Dr. Uppgaard's book and the RTS book. Both authors discuss such subjects as the impact of mental stress, neck and shoulder problems, the ears and hearing, dizziness, proper breathing, referred pain, the importance of good posture and the benefits of holistic healing treatments. But what really jumped off the pages in Dr. Uppgaard's book were references to certain neck muscles that, if tense, could cause "visual disturbances and blurring of vision". The RTS book states that "the neck is tight for all people who have blurred vision." The sternocleidomastoid muscle described on page 50 of Dr. Uppgaard's book has had such a strong connection with my improving vision. I've gotten to the stage where I can massage areas in this muscle to release tension (trigger points as discussed in his book) and cause spasm-like sensations in and around my eyes, ears, jaw and cheeks. Looking back many years ago, I believe now that my dentist had at one time suspected a TMJ disorder. I recall him checking the TMJ on both sides and asking some questions. Based on my responses, I guess I didn't fit into the slot of standard symptoms for which he was trained to assess, because nothing further was suggested. Yet when I got Dr. Uppgaard's book, I checked off so many symptoms, presumably lesser known to many and unknown to most. What started as a goal of keener eyesight has ultimately led to improved overall health. I applaud Dr. Uppgaard for going "outside the box" of conventional medical views. His book has been a very educational and helpful resource along my journey of natural vision improvement and total wellness.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Thank you for writing this Book!
    I was diagnosed with TMJ many years ago. For the past year I have been battling with numb fingers. After many tests, much time, and a lot of money - an accidental visit to my dentist helped to show TMJ was affecting my fingers. I had never heard of that happening. This book not only lists every possible symptom, but exercises that are extremely helpful.

    After reading the book for about 15 minutes, I tried the first exercise. My jaw felt immediate relief. I am very grateful for this book. It will certainly help in relieving pain and discomfort.

    5-0 out of 5 stars "Do it Yourself" help for the desperate
    I had never heard of TMJ until late February 04.

    After years of predictable middle America life, things went crazy for me in 2003. Both my parents died after long painful illnesses (where I was the care giver), my company hired a hatchet man to reduce costs, and he outsourced all our jobs to India (George Bush thinks this is a good thing? That shows how out of touch he is with the actual working class in this country!), my daughter was in a car accident, my husband needed knee surgery, and my dog died! (I know that in retrospect, it all starts to make me want to laugh, just the sheer negativity of it all). Evidently, I began clenching and grinding my teeth, so my dentist gave me a mouth guard.

    Ironically, this CAUSED TMJ symptoms! A week after using the mouth guard, my jaw began to pop. To her credit, my dentist determined this was caused by an improperly designed mouth guard so we agreed I would stop using it. However, symptoms escalated (even without the mouth guard) to jaw pain, popping and tension that did not allow me to eat anything more solid than oatmeal!
    I could only open my mouth the width of 1 finger.

    My local doctor knew nothing about TMJ. At this point, my dentist also washed her hands of the situation and said she referred such cases to a specialist. The problem for me is that I was in transition, moving from one part of the USA to another area almost 1000 miles away. I did not have time to establish a relationship with a TMJ specialist in my old neighborhood. I felt totally on my own! As those with TMJ know, 1 day can seem like an eternity in such a case.

    So what does the modern person do in such cases? If they are like me, they surf the internet for help! I came to Amazon.com and searched for books on TMJ, and found this book. Upon receipt, I read the doctor's holistic approach (including general body muscle releasing exercises, e.g., I am doing Yoga each day via a video tape by Peggy Cappy). Perhaps more importantly, I did the deceptively simple exercises at least twice a day, and made part of my ongoing life his directive on letting the tongue help me establish a new habit to break the clenching/grinding insanity that probably precipitated TMJ.

    Results? I still have to be wary of not abusing my jaw. I no longer eat nuts, hard pretzyls, hard candies, or even steak. However, I am able to eat normal food again without experiencing pain or popping. I can open my mouth up to 3 fingers in width (which the doctor considers the norm). I do the doctor's exercises every single day, even if my jaw feels normal. I apply a heat pad 2 times a day. I am more conscious of my body's stress reactions, e.g., on days when a part of me is frightened or tense (now living in a totally new city with a new climate), I know I must be more kind to my jaw and not over tax it.

    Will I have to live with TMJ forever? Perhaps...but what I hope to achieve is a benign relationship. Right now most of the symptoms are gone, and so our relationship consists of me continuing with the preventive exercises in the doctor's book and being aware of my stress level and what I am sticking in my mouth!

    Bye the book. You cannot fail for the price.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good information about TMJ
    This book contains information about the disorder, causes, anatomy, precipitating factors, exercises, and splints.

    5-0 out of 5 stars a non-invasive cure
    This book offers a simple, non-invasive cure to a miserable problem that is poorly understood or treated. I had chronic jaw pain for over a year when I happened to meet Dr. Uppgaard at a holiday party. During our conversation the topic of TMJ came up and I learned that he had a book out on the subject. Within days of doing the simple exercises, my pain began to diminish, and was completely gone in about two weeks. Now it only returns during times of stress, and by doing these exercises again for a few days, it disappears. After all that time of being in pain, who could imagine that the solution could be so simple! This book is certainly an important "first try" before doing something like surgery which can makes the problem worse. THANK YOU, DR. BOB! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very worth the money
    I found the sample questions and rationales invaluable on the national board (passed in the hight 90's), yes the chapters are long and dry, but if you only do the tests, you WILL get you money's worth. We are here to lears are we not?

    4-0 out of 5 stars Mosby's Comprehensive Review of Dental Hygiene
    This book is not as bad as the previous review. Most of students in my class have this book and we agree that it's very helfull. There are a lot of information in the book appeared in the latest National Board exam in March. The authors of this bood just need to update the changes of recent NB exam. I personally believe that the person who wrote the previous commen was the same person who wrote the commen for the book title "Review of Dental Hygiene" by Debralee McKelvey Nelson.

    1-0 out of 5 stars I WASTED MY MONEY
    Don't buy this book! The sections are too long and take a lot of time to cover. There aren't a lot of good examples or clarifications of what they are trying to make you understand. The test questions at the end of each section are much more difficult then what you have to know for the actual NATIONAL BOARD. There is a mock test at the end of the book, but don't attempt it because your score will only depress you. The reading is very dry and you'll get to the point where all you want to do is throw it in the garbage. If I could return this book for half the price that I've already paid I would do it gladly. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Most used textbook during my residencies!
    This was an invaluable book that I only glanced at a few times during dental school, but during both my hospital based-general practice residency and pediatric residency was my constant guide. It provides both medical and dental management for most encountered problems that patients present with and has lots of great quick reference tables!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference for dental practitioners
    This text has become the standard reference and source of definitive information for dental management of medically compromised patients. It serves as the textbook for Oral Medicine in many dental schools and offers practitioners valuable insight into care for acutely and chronically ill patients.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A must read for dental professionals to update vital info!
    Every working and instructing dental professional should readthis text concerning medically compromised patients. It updates, aswell as reviews, the important topics that are seen every day in private practice. Especially important is the areas of TB, HIV, and diabetes, although recent information may need to be added by the practioner (check out internet sites for these). Introductory tables are a must for reference in a clinical situation. I have used it a reference text in my clinical practice and in my continuing education courses. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars What a Book - a must BUY
    The author takes an revolutionary approach to restoring anterior teeth, a Biomimetic approach. The author goes back to basics and studies nature i.e. the form and function of natural teeth. He then studies how each tissue (dentine/enamel) behaves mechanically (when loaded) and where the forces and stresses concentrate. These findings then lay the foundation as to how teeth should be restored i.e. should they be restored so they are as strong as nature (mimic natures strength) or stronger. The author tends to favour the former approach, and goes about outlining materials and design principles that will achieve this result. He presents an extremely interesting method and commonsense approach to restoring teeth. By reading this book, it allows us to reflect upon the potential disasters (verticle root fractures, decorination) that may be caused by restoring teeth in the traditional way (crowns & posts) whereby making them stronger than nature.

    5-0 out of 5 stars You must have this book
    This book is a must have if you enjoy doing bonded porcelain restorations and you want to see how a master does it. The lab work is unbelievable and the photography is excellent. Its like having an Ansel Adams book: you have to see how the best do it so that you have something to aspire to.

    The cost is pretty high, but so what. You will want to take notes when you read this. If you are really flush with cash, buy one for your lab tech. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars THE trauma set to own
    Don't bother with the 7-volume set by the same author. It covers too many subjects in not enough detail. THIS is THE trauma set to own for the practicing OMF surgeon and residents. There is hardly a question not answered within these large texts. Surgical anatomy is reviewed, the pictures are excellent, it is well written, and it is current. It is a book that you should acquire as one of your first titles while an OMF resident. Useful for ENT and Plastics, as well, but really covers the discipline of OMFS trauma nicely.
