By dr. Paul G. Fleisher
This is an excellent resource by a truly knowledgeable dentist and a remarkable lecturer and teacher. I actually bought the book because I gave my original to a dental student as a gift because she just wants to understand more than is taught at the predoctoral level.

1.0 out of 5 stars.  Dr. Dawson's Method's Completely Wrong & Harmful, August 17, 2005
By Kelly M. Richard (Calgary, Canada)
Dr. Peter Dawson's method's are completely wrong and harmful and based on a concept that has long been proven to be seriously wrong. Centric relation as defining the correct spacing for condyle within the temporomandibular joint is completely wrong and anyone using this long outdated philosophy is injuring patients. For decades now the anatomy of the TM joint has been known and properly understood which has proven the concept of centric relation to be completely wrong and not consistant with proper joint positioning or optimum jaw joint health and no health professional, especially a dental professional, should ever push or put pressure on a patient's jaw as it CAUSES TMJ injuries. Dr. Dawson's theory that pushing on a patient's jaw and them reporting any pain caused by this procedure DIAGNOSES TMJ injuries is ridiculous as the action itself is causing the TMJ injuries that he claims this action diagnoses! Pain is the universal understood sign of injury and it is insane of Dr. Dawson to think this procedure, which causes pain as it directly injures the jaw joint since it does not naturally move the way Dr. Dawson instructs dentists to manipulate it to, diagnoses an injury when the jaw is not supposed to move this way in the first place and the pain he describes as a sign of a pre-existing actual a sign of an injury caused to the patient from doing this procedure. Any dental professional stupid enough to not see through the nonsense in this book and to follow it's methods deserves to have their license taken away as they are clearly injuring patients when there is abundant information available to them to show them that Dr. Dawson's methods and completely wrong. This book is a lesson in what NOT to do and should never be seen as valid or legitamate.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  A classic, March 23, 2003
By Phil (San Rafael Ca. USA)
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, December 25, 1996
By A customer
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.
