Integrated Clinical Orthodontics provides an important new resource on the clinical interactions between the practice of orthodontics and other areas of clinical dentistry and medicine. Having at its heart the paradigm of patient-centred care, the book not only integrates the knowledge, skills, and experience of all the disciplines of dentistry and medicine, but also eases the work of orthodontists in arriving at an accurate diagnosis and a comprehensive treatment plan. Presented in a highly visual and practical format, Integrated Clinical Orthodontics uses clinical case presentations to illustrate the rationale and application of the integrated approach to a variety of clinical scenarios. Integrated Clinical Orthodontics covers areas of complexity in clinical orthodontics, specifically the role of the orthodontist as a member of a multidisciplinary team. The book outlines and details the management of congenital orofacial deformities, sleep disorders, esthetic smile creation and temporomandibular joint problems, and additionally and importantly includes specific protocols for effective communication with experts in other specialties.

“I feel that this book is well-written and easy to follow. The authors have clearly fulfilled their aims and objectives and this book will be a valuable resource for every orthodontist and anyone with a special interest in orthodontics, especially when faced with challenging clinical situations.” (British Dental Journal, 12 October 2013) “The editors, authors, and publishers should be congratulated on the production of a much needed, competitively priced, and well-produced book which is essential reading for all orthodontists who work, or are training to work, in the interdisciplinary arena.” (European Journal of Orthodontics, 1 September 2012) “This exceptional textbook will be a valuable resource for every orthodontist and resident, especially when faced with such challenging clinical situations as my cleft-palate case.” (Journal of Clinical Orthodontics, 1 September 2012) “This is a valuable reference work, one that should be used along with other comprehensive orthodontic texts because of its unique focus on other disciplines. It should be in the library of postdoctoral students of orthodontics, orthodontic educators, and practicing orthodontists who are interested in not only the clinical aspects but also the biologic bases of orthodontic treatment.
