the new edition of this bestselling dental textbook has been thoroughly updated to keep abreast of current knowledge of the disease processes, and the role of operative dentistry in their management. the book describes, clearly and concisely, the indications and methods for many common operative and conservative procedures in dental practice. procedures and techniques are illustrated in full colour, and where appropriate, step-by-step sequences are given. its popularity lies in the fact that it doubles as an atlas, and the text is clear and accessible. the new co-author, tim watson, is well known as an expert in adhesive dentistry. a new chapter has been added on adhesion and adhesive restorations, since these are now the first choice for primary lesions for all surfaces and all teeth in the mouth. amalgam is still thoroughly described, but bonding techniques are now included with a shift away from pins where retention is a problem. the diagnosis of failed restorations has been updated in the light of new research and techniques for refurbishment and repair of restorations are advocated where appropriate. as in previous editions, the approach is disease and prevention orientated, is problem based and the changes have a research evidence-base.
from reviews of the seventh edition:
`it is a book of perspectives and of context, and to the author’s credit. it presents these quite well… broader than most dental texts in its perspective, and shorter than almost all other operative texts in its length, this edition of pickard’s manual is a very readable collection of treatment guidelines for operative dentistry.’ canadian dental association journal
`it is primarily aimed at the undergraduate, but it can be recommended to practitioners who over the years have slipped into a routine based on how they were taught twenty or more years ago… this is a well illustrated, well set out and easy to read manual which can be recommended to undergraduates and not-so-new graduates alike.’ australian dental journal

pickard’s manual of operative dentistry, may 21, 2009
it is a classical good book to operative dentistry. although professor pickard passed away, his book can keep “eigth edition”. i just read the first part of it only but i will keep on finishing it. i’m just the ninth edition. much more concise! it’s just irresistable to have a look of it and collect of it. waiting for the new edition, too.

periodontal surgery: a clinical atlas, july 27, 2005
the volume arrived in perfect condition. the large and well-spaced format promised clear illustration and sequencing of procedures, which was mostly,but not always, the case. a number of procedures had quite complex suturing involved, which was only shown when completed, not during the suturing, and this i found quite a let down.
overall, the atlas describes, with the aid of great photographs, a variety of periodontal surgical procedures, but does not always provide the desired detail in all aspects of the procedure.

this book is intended principally for undergraduate dental students in their final year and dentists taking postgraduate courses. it should also be of interest to professionals complementary to dentistry, seeking an introduction to the subject. the text is not intended to develop skills to the specialist level, but rather to help in preparing for examinations or clinical situations in which basic knowledge of the topic is required.
the text has been arranged in an ordered sequence from an introduction to the subject, through to completion of treatment using implant-stabilized prostheses and the all-important management of problems. since there are a number of clinical situations where it may be advantageous to use dental implants, several of the chapters describe procedures that could be used in different circumstances.
the text is not primarily intended to be read from cover to cover, but rather as a series of discrete chapters, although many build on knowledge acquired in earlier sections. readers may therefore find it helpful to select particular chapters when seeking information on one aspect of implant therapy. consequently, many chapters contain brief resumes of information covered earlier in the book to avoid needless cross-referencing.
the information has been arranged in three ways. firstly, there is the body text, which covers each topic in the intended detail; secondly there are supplemen-tary photographs and diagrams; and finally there are a number of summary lists which are intended to be used by the reader as an aid when preparing for an examination or wishing to use the material in a clinical setting.
“this is a book with a strong pedigree and is based on the previously successful book also written by the authors “a colour atlas and text of dental and maxillo-facial implantology”.
the information in this book cannot be faulted and the pictures are of very good quality.” d walmsley, british dental journal, january 2004
textbook is ideal for undergraduate dental students, and any member of the dental team who wants a deeper insight into some of the implant treatment possibilities.” dr waseem noordin, dental practice, september 2003
the book is incredibly well organised, breaking down information into a series of headings and bullet points. this information is also summarised in table form. the text is comprehensive, supported by a wealth of clinical images and schematic illustrations covering all aspects of implant dentistry. the authors have aimed this book at final year dental students, dentists taking postgraduate courses and professionals complementary to dentistry. in laying the book out in discrete chapters in an easy to read style, i think that it will find an enthusiastic audience.” instructor, university of birmingham school of dentistry, dental update, april 2004
