‘This textbook is outstanding and its inclusion in the literature for postgraduate orthodontic programmes should be mandatory. In addition, it is as an invaluable guide for experienced orthodontic specialists.'

‘The primary audience for this textbook is presumably graduate students and residents in orthodontics, oral and maxillofacial surgery, and periodontology. Students of pediatric dentistry and general dentistry would also benefit greatly from reading the book. In fact, it is a necessity for any practicing orthodontist who endeavors to treat impactions. I give it my highest recommendation.'
