One of the biggest challenges facing practitioners nowadays is offering quality dental care while demonstrating clinical competence, and comprehensive and compassionate patient care. Therefore, training and refreshing of knowledge are absolute necessities that contribute to successful clinical patient care.
The acquisition of new ideas is dependent on reading. As Nietzsche put in his book Beyond Good and Evil (1886) "Naturally in order to practice reading as an art, one thing above all is necessary, which nowadays has been thoroughly unlearned, for which one must almost be a cow and at any rate not a "modern man", namely rumination”. Such reading should be selective, meeting well-defined objectives, with a critical understanding of the medical and scientific information.
Access to information and the demystification of knowledge are the currency of this century despite the efforts exerted by some retention. Production’s "open source" plays and will continue to play a very important role in sharing and disseminating knowledge and expertise. The present book embodies such a state of mind.
The book reflects the ideas of nineteen academic and research experts from different countries. It provides an overview of the state-of-the-art, outlines the experts’ knowledge and their efforts to provide readers with quality content explaining new directions and emerging trends in Orthodontics. The book should be of great value to both orthodontic practitioners and to students in orthodontics, who will find learning resources in connection with their fields of study. This will help them to acquire valid knowledge and excellent clinical skills.
Last but not at least, I would like to express my deep gratitude to the editorial team and colleagues who havecontributed, one way or another, to the fulfilment of this work.
