Samir E. Bishara, DDS, MS, Professor, University of Iowa, College of Dentistry, Iowa City, IA
This is a comprehensive textbook written for the predoctoral dental student. Samir E. Bishara and the other contributors present the fundamentals of orthodontics in 30 chapters divided into six sections: Growth and Development; Diagnosis; Appliances; Treatment and Treatment Considerations; Other Aspects Related to Treatment; and Orthodontics and Adjunct Treatment. Case examples relate the concepts to clinical applications and make the text appealing and useful.
Excellent!, April 4, 2004
Dr. Bishara’s book fills a gap in pre-doctoral dental education. From the perspective of a pediatric dentist, I enjoyed the emphasis placed on growth and development. This book is a great starting point for dental students or practicing dentists interested in orthodontics.
