Review:

This book was a pleasure to read. It is well written and well illustrated. The case studies at the end of most chapters were particularly beneficial to understanding what was presented. The author has long-term follow-up with many of his patients, which allows the reader to see how treatment held up over the years. --Kevin Hanley, DDS - The New York State Dental Journal, August/September 2008

All orthodontists and students who aspire to rendering optimal treatment to their patients, regardless of their preferred appliance systems, will be engaged, intrigued, and inspired by Dr Alexander s extraordinary book. --Elliott M. Moskowitz, DDS, MSD - Journal of Clinical Oncology, August 2008
