..an excellent introduction to the study and practice of orthodontics...the book is well written...and I would readily recommmend it to all concerned.
Although no textbook can be regarded as an alternative to supervised training, this introduction to orthodontics is a well laid out and easy to follow book that is full of useful information for dental undergraduates, dentists with an interest in orthodontics and specialists in related fields such as paediatric dentistry.
--International Journal of Paediatric Dentistry
This is a very affordable text, which should definitely be on the bookshelves of students as well as those general dental practitioners who wish to be aware of current concepts in orthodontics.
It is the sort of book that benefits from being read from start to finish by the undergraduate as it covers everything (and more) that they will need for their exams... Anyone who is looking for contemporary orthodontic information suitable for undergraduates and general dental practitioners will find everything they need in this book. It should be available in every dental school library.
