Contributors Foreword
First, I would really like to confess how fortunate and honored I feel to be invited to write the Foreword for this new edition that addresses all aspects of esthetic and restorative discipline in dentistry in a remarkable fashion.
For the third time, Dr Nisha Garg creates a new edition of her well-known book Textbook of Operative Dentistry, which is, perhaps, one of the smartest cover-to-cover textbooks, and best described in an easy-to-learn and easy-to-teach manner.
Embracing and presenting a modern practical guide to provide a sound operative outcome through the highest quality of educational illustration and clinical case presentation. These wonderful thirty-two chapters are characterized by clinical and teaching excellence expressing the authors’ dedication and legacy to update learners with the art and science of this rapidly and dramatically changing field.
From the Introduction to Operative Dentistry in chapter one starting with the evolutionary history of Operative Dentistry, its indications and objectives going through Tooth Nomenclature, Physiology of Tooth Form, Cariology, Types and Classification of Instruments, Principles of Tooth Preparation, the hot topic of Pulp Protection and ending up with all what a student or a practitioner needs to know regarding Bonding Agents and Techniques, Amalgam and Cast Metal Restorations that all together make a formidable edition to those interested in mastering this craft in this branch of dentistry.
This copiously illustrated edition with high-quality photographs, line diagrams and clinical cases, demonstrates comprehensive evidence-based theoretical and clinical knowledge for continuous education. This would meet the increasing demand and expectations of the dental professionals, who strive for enhanced patient care.
Although an associate not a substitute for essential training and clinical practice, this text will continue to provide practitioners from all around the globe and, particularly, in the Asia Pacific region with a reliable, exceptional reference and manual written by great teachers and authors that addresses specialists as well as general practitioners.
The direct and indirect acquired benefits include increased confidence and craftsmanship to provide a quality service of even difficult clinical situations. Although many books have been written on this subject, every professional, including myself, acknowledges the genuine and sincere efforts and expresses the deepest gratitude and appreciation for this unique adjunct educational resource that spreads enthusiasm and optimism.

It gives us immense pleasure to connect with you all again, through this third edition of Textbook of Operative Dentistry.We once again thank almighty God for his blessings in all our endeavors.
The book attempts to incorporate most recent advances in Operative Dentistry while at the same time not losing the sight of basics, therefore, making the study of Operative Dentistry easier and interesting. The main feature of this new edition is a new format wherein the flow charts and photographs are in plenty.

12 13 Preface to the First Edition
Operative Dentistry is one of the oldest branches of dental sciences forming the central part of dentistry as practiced in primary care. The clinical practice of operative dentistry is ever-evolving as a result of improved understanding of etiology, prevention and management of common dental diseases. The advances and developments within the last two decades have drastically changed the scope of this subject.
Since effective practice of operative dentistry requires not only excellent manual skills but also both understanding of disease process and properties of dental materials available for use. The main objective of the book is to provide students with the knowledge required while they are developing necessary clinical skills and attitude in their undergraduate and postgraduate training in Operative Dentistry. We have tried to cover wide topics such as cariology, different techniques and materials available for restorations, recent concepts in management of carious lesions, infection control, minimally intervention dentistry and nanotechnology.
So we can say that after going through this book, the reader should be able to:
