Teeth: the untold story of beauty, inequality, and the struggle for oral health in America / by Mary Otto
The New Press, c2017.

"This book provides a look into the insular world of dental care in America. It examines the enduring tension between the need of all Americans for dental services and the lack of services available to millions of us under the current system. Beginning with the world's first dental college that opened in Baltimore in 1840, not far from where Deamonte died, this book explores dentistry's evolution in isolation from the rest of the nation's health care system. Its narrative seeks to explain why obtaining dental services may require a journey that some patients never manage to make." From preface of the book, p. ix

Now in its 10th edition, Getting into dental school is packed with detailed advice and up-to-date information on what you need to do to secure a place on the course of your choice and take the first steps towards your dream career."
