Orthodontics and paediatric dentistry are important areas of the undergraduate dental curriculum. No pocket colour atlas currently exists. All dentists have to know how to treat children, carry out basic orthodontic treatment and when to refer patients for specialist orthodontic treatment. Most orthodontic work is carried out on children, so the two subjects are conveniently integrated in this Colour Guide.
