In September 2012, Kimberly Harms, DDS, dedicated 7 libraries for Books For Africa, including a dental library in Rwanda at the Kigali Health Institute Department of Dentistry. Dr Harms has been working with prominent American dental schools to form collaborations and student partnerships to support the education of young dental students in Rwanda. In addition, Quintessence Publishing donated hundreds of books to a dental library project. If you would like to support the library projects in Africa, please click here for more information.
Books For Africa, founded in 1988 by Tom Warth, is working to end the book famine in Africa. Books For Africa remains the largest shipper of donated text and library books to Africa, shipping over 27 million books to 48 different countries since 1988.
The second edition of Dr Douglas Terry’s Esthetic and Restorative Dentistry: Material Selection and Technique is now available from Quintessence, and Dr Terry shared some thoughts on this new edition:
The first edition of Esthetic and Restorative Dentistry: Material Selection and Technique was so well received by restorative dentists, dental technicians, prosthodontists, periodontists, oral surgeons, dental students, and auxiliaries worldwide that it has necessitated a second edition and translation into three languages (Italian, German, and Russian).
This second English edition continues to promote innovative ideas and techniques for using new biomaterials with proven scientific principles and concepts. New cases are featured in each chapter and hundreds of new photographs have been used throughout. Also, acknowledged leaders in dentistry from around the world have reviewed the concepts and materials, and several of these reviewers have even provided cases that showcase brilliant ideas and techniques.
As ever, my goal is to promote the highest level of excellence in dentistry.
—Dr Douglas Terry, DDS
