This is a departure from traditional textbooks that tend to focus mainly on clinical diagnosis and treatment procedures. The author adopted a patient-centered paradigm whereby successful outcomes in orthodontic treatment depend on striking a balance between servicing the patient?s needs and exercising sound clinical judgment. The illustrations are excellent and the concept original. Much useful information is included in this slim volume. American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics Any orthodontist or resident who is genuinely interested in providing meaningful treatment to his or her patients while understanding the important dynamics that are woven together in a sensible modern philosophy, free from the nonproductive tyranny of dogma or gadgetry, should read this book. What a refreshing contribution to the science and art of orthodontics. Journal of Clinical Orthodontics
