About the book

This book aims to explore the various management strategies for facial and dental anomalies which include both surgical and non-surgical orthopedic interventions. Treatments like craniofacial and orthognathic surgery are critical not only in addressing skeletal malocclusion but also in the management of obstructive sleep apnea, facial cosmetics, orthodontic discrepancies, cleft and craniofacial deformities, post-traumatic dentofacial asymmetry, and temporomandibular joint disorders.

The craniomaxillofacial skeleton consists of multiple intricate and distinct but co-functioning units. Corrective measures are typically multi-disciplinary in approach, requiring the skills of experienced providers in plastic surgery, otolaryngology, oral and maxillofacial surgery, sleep medicine, orthodontics, and dentistry. Thus, the text itself is meant to be an inter-professional collaboration of providers from a variety of specializations.

We hope to create a book that is relevant not only across medical disciplines but across ethnicities as well. To this end, we welcome experts from across the globe to help ensure that the information contained within remains universal.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mrs. Dajana Jusic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
