ORTHODONTICS
The Art and Practice of Dentofacial Enhancement

So often, our peers can teach us far more than any book: The Treatment Planning Challenge is designed to be a forum for readers to learn from one another. In each issue, we will present a complex case, complete with intra- and extraoral photographs, panoramic and cephalometric radiographs, and cephalometric data, as well as any essential anamnestic details. In the same issue, you will also learn how the clinician treated the case and its outcome.

Send us your completed challenging case for a future issue: Provide all pre-and posttreatment records, as well as a short explanation of why you chose the treatment plan you did at http://www.manuscriptmanager.com/ortho. Select TPC (new case) from the Manuscript Type drop-down menu. Low-resolution images are acceptable for the review process; however, if your case is chosen for publication, keep in mind you will need to provide images that are at least 300 dpi at 3.5 inches wide. You must also have signed patient consent for publication of the photographs.
