As a result of the speed at which clinical practice changes, a new edition of which clinical practice changes, a new edition of An Introduction to Orthodontics will prove invaluable. This popular textbook continues to provide a first-rate introduction to current thinking and the practice of orthodontics. This is an extremely readable and user-friendly book for both undergraduate dentistry students and the interested general dental practitioner alike. The strength of the book lies in its logical and concise format and is complemented by over 350 full-color photographs."@en ;
