Enhancement Orthodontics: Theory and Practice provides a concise and compact clinical guide to achieving esthetic results through orthodontics. Challenging the accepted wisdom of the past, it offers a fresh look at orthodontic treatment, using a patient-centered paradigm for enhancing the appearance, function, and health of the dentofacial features. A mixture of clinical cases and decision-making coaching delivers an easy-to-follow guide to the prevailing clinical scenarios and how to treat them. Dwelling not merely on the intra-oral results, Enhancement Orthodontics demonstrates how to employ whole-face analysis to improve overall dentofacial appearance.

This is a departure from traditional textbooks that tend to focus mainly on clinical diagnosis and treatment procedures. The author adopted a patient-centered paradigm whereby successful outcomes in orthodontic treatment depend on striking a balance between servicing the patient’s needs and exercising sound clinical judgment.

The illustrations are excellent and the concept original. Much useful information is included in this slim volume.
