State of the art knowledge base for TADs, December 17, 2008

This is an excellent book for an emerging area that is revolutionizing the practice of orthodontics. For most of us in practice, we want to find out as much as we can about TADs and here it is all presented in a clear and concise manner. Unlike some books that are just touting a particular brand-name or product to help sell things, this book just tells it like it is. Highly recommended for orthodontists new and old.

Excellent book, November 8, 2010

Dr. Nanda and Dr. Uribe have done a great job in describing the latest techniques in skeletal anchorage device use. I highly recommend adding this book to your office library.
