3D Head and Neck Anatomy for Dentistry DVD-ROM

I’ve only just installed this new DVD-ROM on my iMac, but I can already tell you it’s the new “must have” for all dentists, especially anyone with an interest in the anatomy and function of the muscles of mastication and the TMJs.

The impressive roll call of authors includes Prof Patricia Reynolds, Director of Flexible Learning at King’s Dental Institute, along with Barry Berkovitz and Bernie Moxham, who had the difficult task of teaching me 2nd BDS anatomy and physiology in the 1970s at Bristol Dental School. They have also published a number of beautifully illustrated and very popular dental anatomy and physiology text books over the years.

Here’s the link to the web site:

Priced at £180 this is something of a bargain for a very comprehensive DVD-ROM (PC and Mac compatible) of this quality. I can’t begin to imagine the number of potential uses there are for this product, but it will be invaluable not only for dentists’ own education, and also a great aid to communicating with dental nurses, hygienists and, most importantly perhaps, patients.

Roy and I use many of the animations  already in our lectures, but there are some new ones included here that will make to job of explaining the anatomy and function of the masticatory system considerably easier in the future. What will be particularly invaluable though will be the chance for our delegates to review what they have learned back at home or in the practice.
