❞ كتاب NETTER’S HEAD AND NECK ANATOMY FOR DENTISTRY ❝
Netter’s Head and Neck Anatomy for Dentistry is a text/atlas written to help dental
students and professionals learn and review head and neck anatomy. Designed for firstyear
dental students, it also serves to teach anatomy to students of dental hygiene, and
as a review for the practicing clinician. The head and neck comprise the foundation for
the study of dental anatomy. The many small, interrelated structures are not easily
observable, which makes head and neck anatomy one of the most difficult disciplines
for students to master.
To understand the clinical significance of an anatomic concept is to understand the
anatomy. Accordingly, a series of clinical correlates that relate to dentistry are provided
at the end of every chapter. Many anatomic topics covered in head and neck courses
have been expanded especially for this text. A chapter has been dedicated to the
temporomandibular joint. In the chapter on the oral cavity, more information has been
provided for the reader on such topics as dentition. Chapters on the development of the
head and neck and basic neuroscience are included to help connect with other related
anatomic areas. A chapter on intraoral injections is included to help teach and reinforce
an area often overlooked. These chapters provide the reader with a brief overview of
important concepts related to head and neck anatomy.
A superb team of medical illustrators created new art to complement the anatomic
illustrations of Dr. Frank H. Netter, which resulted in a more complete learning tool.
Essential information is presented in tables and brief text that are integrated with the
Netter art to help bridge gaps and augment the reader’s knowledge of head and neck
Netter’s Head and Neck Anatomy for Dentistry is for those in all stages of the dental
profession. My hope is that this book will provide an essential resource to readers in
helping them to learn and appreciate the complex anatomy of the head and neck.
