Bob Keim: The Editor's Corner 

Something Old, Something New

A senior colleague once told me that if you ever think you have discovered something new in orthodontics, you should look a little deeper into the international literature from 75-100 years ago. You might be surprised at what you find. To be truly innovative, you probably have to stick to technologies that were unknown in the past, such as three-dimensional printing or computer-aided design and manufacturing. When it comes to biomechanics, it's virtually impossible to develop anything novel. . . 


On the cover: Dr. Ross Anderson's drawing "M.A.S.H. Orthodontic Office" appears on this month's cover. Full-size prints, framed or unframed (24" × 24"), will be available for purchase through www.fineartamerica.com. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research.
