“This is a great textbook, and I will use it in my classes. Highly organized and elaborately illustrated, the authors’ work is inspired by problem-based learning and stimulates cognitive processes by encouraging critical thinking. Their text deserves a ‘must read’ category for orthodontic professionals of all ages.”
