Overview

This concise book provides a sound basis in orthodontic diagnosis for both dental students and general dental practitioners. Following an introductory chapter on the development of normal occlusion, the authors offer a clear overview of the diagnostic process. They look at how both local and general factors affect the final treatment plan and the advantages of different management strategies. Diagnosis of the Orthodontic Patient includes over 150 illustrations, five genuine clinical cases, a chapter on evidence-based practice, and a glossary of terms.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Neil M. Warshawsky, DDS, MS, PC (University of Chicago Medical Center)
Description: This book is designed for orthodontic residents and other dental professionals who desire an education in diagnosis and treatment planning of dental malocclusions.
Purpose: The purpose is to create a guideline for evaluating an orthodontic consultation. This book reviews basic principles of eruption and ties them nicely to growth and development of the face. It is an ideal tool for the novice.
Audience: The intended audience is orthodontic and pediatric dental residents. It is easy to read and is a great reference for first time students. Both authors lecture as well as practice orthodontics and are well suited to author this work.
Features: This book discusses diagnosis in a fashion that new clinicians could adequately follow and understand. It is a no-nonsense approach to dissecting facial growth. When necessary, basic dental anatomy is discussed, enabling students to write a mechanical treatment plan to establish balance and harmony in any face.
Assessment: This is a condensed version of a text (such as Profit or MacNamara) where facial growth is taught and analyzed. It is a very good topographical view to treatment planning, and readers will not get mired in esoteric rhetoric. The material presented is minimal but pertinent to basic diagnosis. Overall I felt the book was a nice read, depicting illustrations only when necessary. It is not a flashy book with high gloss photos, but as a relatively inexpensive text, this might be one of the best books in a young orthodontist's armamentarium.
