Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The use of full colour throught makes it extremely attractive and the quality and quantity of information willl make it more than useful for anyone preparing for the MOrth or Master's exams. Once upon a time, there was a book called enquire within on Everything- this handy volume comes very close as regards orthodonttics. I look forward to it becoming a standard." Orthodontic Update, July 2010

''A substantial chapter (6) is devoted to describing the procedure for the aquasition of a comprehensive database for the formulation of an appropriate treatment plan. The timing aims and limiting factors of orthodontic treatment are debated in Chapter 7. Shown and described in Chapter 8 are the variety of tooth movements that can be achieved with removable appliances, either individually or on groups of teeth. The authors claim to have attempted to write a book that will appeal to students of orthodontics; I believe this they certainly have achieved. Stressed is the necessity of understanding of the basic sciences which includes a detailed description of craniofacial development, growth and disease.'' Dr. Alex Jacobson

"Both a textbook and a work of reference, this 400-page paperback is accompanied by a substantial index (over 20 pages). This makes quick referral to any of the subjects included here very straightforward."
