The Art and Practice of Dentofacial Enhancement

Publication frequency: discontinued
Language: English
Subjects: Orthodontics

Editor in Chief: Rafi Romano, DMD, MSc
Quintessence Publishing, USA
The orthodontic landscape is quite different now than when the World Journal of Orthodontics (ISSN 1530-5678) came into existence in 2000 - from the way patients view the services that orthodontists render to the advances in technology associated with orthodontic practice. No longer a mechanistic retooling of dental occlusion, orthodontics is more of a life-enhancing exercise, with the patient's improved dentofacial appearance leading to greater opportunities in life. To reflect this new paradigm and WJO's new focus on esthetic treatment, the journal has become "Orthodontics: The Art and Practice of Dentofacial Enhancement".

This journal is now discontinued and was succeeded by the yearbook "Orthodontics" in 2012.
Issue 1/2012,   Volume 13   (01.06.2012)
