I am pleased to write this foreword of this new book on local anesthesia and exodontia.

The Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery has an extensive body of literature; the dental extraction is one of the essential dentoalveolar procedures and the dentist should be well oriented to it scientifically and technically.

I found this book an excellent and impressive work which has been written in a concise and precise manner. The concept of local dental anesthesia and dental extraction is focused in book.

On reading this book, I have felt, it is not only recommended for undergraduates. It is also highly suitable for postgraduate trainees in their residency program, such as those in the level of Saudi Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery program. It may help in a rapid revision of the management of simple and complicated dental extraction during the pre-exam period.

I dedicate this book to undergraduates and postgraduates trainees with the hope that it fulfills their need in understanding the concepts of dental extraction.
