Review quote

"This text is a tour de force in its field and is of significance to embryologists, craniofacial biologists, geneticists, syndromologists and oral and maxillofacial surgeons for its concepts and innovations in this rapidly expanding field. The quality of production from Academic Press is superb, providing a landmark reference work for those in the forefront of craniofacial research and regenerative surgical therapy."--British Dental Journal, May 23, 2014
