The book is well illustrated with coloured diagrams and numerous clinical photographs, making it very easy for the reader to grasp the concepts of orthodontics... In summary, this book, which is competitively priced, provides a thorough introduction to the main concepts of orthodontics and it will appeal to a diverse readership including undergraduate and postgraduate students, general dental practitioners with a special interest in orthodontics, and general dentists who want to get an overview of the specialty. * European Journal of Orthodontics, August 2013 * This book offers a well-organized overview of the orthodontic field and is a nice addition to the general practitioner's collection * Doody's Notes * This book equips the reader with a strong fundamental foundation in the subject... a superb text, which I would have no hesitation in recommending to anyone with an interest in orthodontics. * British Dental Journal, June 2013 *
