Dental defects may be the physical expression of genetic defects, and so they can often be seen in a variety of syndromes associated with malformations of organs. However, dental defects are often not recognized, identified, nor characterised despite representing a possible diagnostic sign for an undiagnosed condition. This book addresses this gap by providing an understanding of dental genetics and its developmental biology counterpart. With approximately seventy well-illustrated examples, the authors present the clinical oro-facial manifestations accompanying various syndromes, providing the necessary knowledge for diagnostic purposes, as well as giving insight into recent development for each specific condition. The clarity and format of this book make it an ideal support guide both in the clinic and while conducting research.

A. BLOCH-ZUPAN is a world wide known expert in odontogenetics. Her research interests are craniofacial and specifically palate and tooth development and their abnormalities. Her originality is to combine approaches both in mice and humans presenting these palate and teeth developmental defects as clinical phenotypical manifestations of rare diseases. She is also leading the D/phenodent (see www.phenodent.org) registry for human dental anomalies and a PHRC on Amelogenesis imperfecta.
