SUGGESTED READING MATERIAL for CANDIDATES AND TRAINEES

The following list is provided as suggested reading material. No attempt is made to restrict examination questions to the material in these references. The examination reflects the current state of knowledge in veterinary dentistry rather than material from a particular group of references. Much of veterinary dental knowledge has been derived from human dentistry. This is reflected in the suggested reading list and will also be reflected in the examination itself.
