Orthodontic treatment generally aims to improve the occlusion and smile esthetics of the patient. But the patient's overall facial appearance determines how they look to others, not just their smile. This book dives deep into dentofacial esthetics and teaches you how to evaluate each patient who walks through your door from the macro to the micro, focusing first on the big picture and then working your way to the minute details in order to treatment plan for the best possible outcome. The author's mantra is that "If you don't see it, you won't treat it," so his goal is to educate dentists and orthodontists about what they should be seeing in order to yield maximally esthetic outcomes, taking into consideration concepts like esthetic balance and smile projection. This book will teach you to see the face and dentition in a different way, guiding you to understand what the problems are, how to think your way through them and put them in a perspective so that you and the patient can agree on the focus of treatment, and then how to choose the most appropriate and effective treatment methods. An invaluable resource for any orthodontist or esthetic dentist.

Dr. David M. Sarver DMD, MS

United States of America, Vestatia

David M. Sarver, DMD, MS, received his DMD from the University of Alabama School of Dentistry and his MS in Orthodontics from the University of North Carolina. He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, a member of the Edward H. Angle Society of Orthodontics, a Fellow in both the International and American Colleges of Dentists, and a Fellow in the American Academy of Esthetic Dentistry. In addition to publishing over 70 scientific articles and 20 book chapters, Dr Sarver is the author of Esthetic Orthodontics and Orthognatic Surgery (Elsevier, 1998) and has coauthored several books, including the last three editions of William Proffit's classic textbook, Contemporary Orthodontics (Elsevier, 2018). He has given more than 400 professional presentations worldwide, and he has been featured on several national television programs, including "The Today Show". Dr Sarver maintains a full-time private practice in Vestavia Hills, Alabama. Over the course of his career, he developed the technology and subsequent use of digital imaging in orthodontics as both a practice management and diagnostic instrument, introduced diode lasers as an instrumental part of orthodontic therapy, and helped in the development of focal field CBCT with Kodak, computerized data-management systems for diagnosis and treatment planning, and individualized treatment design in bracket manufacture. His entire approach to treatment is to evaluate the macro-esthetics (the face), mini-esthetics (the smile), and micro-esthetics (the teeth) of each patient to determine the problem list, which will in turn drive the treatment plan. A true thinker, Dr Sarver seeks to teach other dental professionals how to work in collaboration with one another to optimize patient outcomes, building beautiful smiles and faces as he goes.
