Reviews

"I imagine that clinicians of all levels of experience will learn something from this book. It includes not only the descriptive factual elements but also the experience of the author, which is shared and supported by evidence and description from hundreds of referenced articles and textbooks.

It is an excellent all round educational source for any practitioner and the owner of this text is unlikely to need any other textbook on orthognathic surgery."
