In this book on treating patients with dentofacial deformities, focus is on the surgical and orthodontic principles of orthognathic surgery rather than on research and treatment philosophies.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Rodrigue G. Barakat, DMD (Loyola University Medical Center)
Description: This introductory book on orthognathic surgery supplements its text with quality pictures and diagrams.
Purpose: The purpose is to cover the essentials of treating patients with dentofacial deformities by presenting the science as well as the art of orthognathic surgery.
Audience: The book is directed at any surgeon and postgraduate student involved in the treatment of patients with dentofacial deformities.
Features: The chapters review and discuss orthognathic surgery in a practical way primarily based on the author's experience. The book does not contain much of the research or scientific principles, rather it is more like a cookbook for orthognathic surgery. It presents the reader with all the different steps involved in the treatment of orthognathic patients.
Assessment: This is a good introduction to the field of orthognathic surgery. It provides the reader with basic information on the most commonly practiced procedures. A shortcoming of the book is the fact that the information is supported more by the general experience of the author than by research. The chapters are concise and easy to read. The reader looking for details should refer to more advanced textbooks.
