This unique collaboration between 16 internationally renowned women dentists has resulted in an inspirational textbook on esthetics in modern dentistry. Illustrated with over 750 figures, this book presents a thorough overview of various aspects of esthetics, including orthodontics and orthognathics, implantation, restoration, rehabilitation, materials, trauma, and surgery.
Each author also provides fascinating insight into their journey to become a successful female dentist in a male-dominated industry. The stories differ, but the results are the same - excellent patient care and excellent esthetics.
