Description / Abstract:


The basic premise and rationale on which the rst edition of Orthodontic Pearls was originally based remains the same. For this reason, the original introduction has been retained allowing both new and old readers to acquaint themselves with the original objectives of Orthodontic Pearls. I do hope that readers will take the opportunity to read the original introduction.

When it comes to writing the second edition of a textbook, clearly, the editor is faced with the dilemma of how to manage the balance between the inclusion of new material and the exclusion of old material. I hope that this introduction will help the reader understand how I, as the editor, tried to manage this dilemma.

Any clinician who has been in practice for some years comes to realise that rstly, there is a life outside the ofce (see "A little Philosophy" at the end of this introduction Harold M Shavell) and secondly, in order to keep up to date with our professional life, education is an essential continuing process. This theme has been expressed in Chapter 1 where the importance of continuing education is well described and written by two orthodontic educators of international standing: Nada M Souccar and Lionel P Sadowsky.
