Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“I feel that this book is well-written and easy to follow. The authors have clearly fulfilled their aims and objectives and this book will be a valuable resource for every orthodontist and anyone with a special interest in orthodontics, especially when faced with challenging clinical situations.”  (British Dental Journal, 12 October 2013)

“The editors, authors, and publishers should be congratulated on the production of a much needed, competitively priced, and well-produced book which is essential reading for all orthodontists who work, or are training to work, in the interdisciplinary arena.”  (European Journal of Orthodontics, 1 September 2012)

“This exceptional textbook will be a valuable resource for every orthodontist and resident, especially when faced with such challenging clinical situations as my cleft-palate case.”  (Journal of Clinical Orthodontics, 1 September 2012)

“This is a valuable reference work, one that should be used along with other comprehensive orthodontic texts because of its unique focus on other disciplines. It should be in the library of postdoctoral students of orthodontics, orthodontic educators, and practicing orthodontists who are interested in not only the clinical aspects but also the biologic bases of orthodontic treatment.  (American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics, 2012)
