"Alan Joe has crafted a gripping and heart-wrenching page-turner about his perilous childhood in China, a teenager’s angst as a newcomer in Toronto’s postwar Chinatown, and fulfillment as a professional and family man. Recommended for anyone whose roots are from afar – and that would be most of us." Arlene Chan, librarian and author.

"Alan Joe tells the deeply moving and inspirational story of how, after surviving extreme poverty and the ravages of war in his boyhood years of the 1940s, he emigrated to Canada, and eventually found peace, hope, reconciliation, self-fulfillment, and opportunity. In the process, he helps us better understand the history of the Chinese community in Canada, and how significantly it has contributed to our culture and way of life. We need many more such stories." Philip Warren, PhD, former Professor at Memorial University.

"This book is the most comprehensive (and possibly the first) manual on ‘Rhino-Orbito-Cerebral Mucormycosis (ROCM) that covers mucormycosis of the nose extending to sinuses, orbit, and brain, all in. This volume covers the surge of cases during the COVID-19 pandemic, early identification and causative factors, microbiology,  pathology and radiology, and the clinical presentation. Notes on surgical approaches, extent, and techniques of debridement, number of sittings, antifungal therapy, complications, and their management equip readers to manage these cases confidently. Detailed descriptions of ROCM surgery accompanied by nearly 500 photographs and anatomical drawings help support diagnostic and surgical decision-making. Also included is information on various specifications of MRI that help in achieving a perfect surgical clearance.

The book includes chapters on debates on salvaging the orbit in ROCM, various situations, their management, the extent of resection, antifungal dosage and duration, prognostication of the patient, and postoperative care.

The book assists surgeons in gaining the skills to perform endoscopic clearance of difficult areas like pterygoplataine fossa, infratemporal fossa, pterygoid plates, and the lacrimal drainage system, which offers significant advantages in terms of avoiding postoperative morbidity as compared to an external route. Since the external route is required in the most extensive form of the disease, the book has also covered it extensively.

This book is an indispensable resource for otorhinolaryngologists, ophthalmic surgeons, ophthalmic plastic surgeons, physicians, microbiologists, pathologists, radiologists, neurosurgeons, faciomaxillary surgeons and junior and senior consultants optometrists and students."

The book addresses both class I, II and III malocclusions, and more complicated cases such as facial asymmetries and temporomandibular problems that develop in the primary dentition. Concise, highly illustrated chapters describe normal and abnormal craniofacial development, and how and why environmental factors can affect the growth pattern. Early diagnosis and treatment planning, long-term case resolution, complementary methods of diagnosis such as occlusion and cephalometric, and more are discussed.
  • Provides clinicians with visual guidance on how to rapidly diagnose malocclusions
  • Contains over 1,300 high-quality images of different Class I, Class II, and Class III malocclusions, including temporomandibular problems, both before and after correction, and long-term follow-ups
  • Helps clinicians correct different malocclusions using the fewest number of appliances and in the least amount of time
  • Includes tables of different cephalometric of before and after corrections for most clinical cases presented in the book
  • Contains a chapter on how to communicate and bond with children as patients to help them understand the importance of wearing their appliances
Children are not young adults so diagnostic methods which are regularly used can often misguide the clinician. Dentofacial Orthopedics in the Growing Child is an invaluable reference that guides pediatric dentists, orthodontists, general dentists, and maxillofacial and craniofacial surgeons with treating children."
