Review from previous edition 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 *
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 *
