This book is based on intensively theoretical chapters. When I was a 1st year postgraduate student, it was very useful for me. I shaped my fundamental knowledge according to this book. Chapters are guides to you to look different perspectives of orthodontic problems. Section IV is my favorite and especially chapter 21 "Treatment of Class III Malocclusion in the Primary and Mixed Dentitions"Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
