    A Nanda classic!

    Contents of the book described shortly by the title of the book 'Current therapy in Orthodontics'. It's totally true!
    Current concepts are written by the authors who are experts of their field. Almost every chapter is interesting. This book was added to me an ability to look from different perspectives for my patients. It's worth every penny you pay.
