This book on 3D printing in oral health science aims to equip the reader with a sound understanding of contemporary clinical applications in all fields of dentistry and their future directions. In the last few years, the development of 3D printing for medical and dental applications has increased tremendously. Advancements in 3D printing create the possibility of customized products, savings on small-scale productions, ease of sharing and processing of patient image data, and educational up-gradation. Looking at the dental specialties, it is evident that 3D printing has applications in all aspects of oral health science including prosthodontics, oral surgery, periodontics, endodontics, and orthodontics. This book will cover all major fields in dentistry and will help the practitioner in the process of decision-making and apply concepts in clinical or laboratory practice. It is based on current scientific evidence to provide readers with an up-to-date contemporary understanding of the subject, both from the clinical and the technological side. The book is a valuable asset for all who specialize in 3D printing and for those interested in learning more about this field.

Dr. Jitendra Sharan did his graduation in Dental Sciences and post-graduation in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics from Manipal University. After post-graduation, he joined Manipal University as faculty. In the pursuit to gain a better understanding of research insight, he joined the Centre for Dental Education and Research, All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi, India as a Doctoral student. He worked on a novel technique for surface modification of Grade V titanium alloy in collaboration with the Indian Institute of Technology-Delhi, Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), and the Council of Scientific & Industrial Research - National Physical Laboratory (CSIR-NPL). He was awarded a Ph.D. degree from AIIMS, New Delhi in 2018 and was the first to get a Ph.D. in dental surgery (Orthodontics) from AIIMS, New Delhi. Since January 2018, he is attached to the Department of Dentistry, AIIMS, Bhubaneswar, as faculty. He has published his research work in reputed journals related to biomaterial science, orthodontics, and interdisciplinary areas.
He has written three books, of which MCQs in Orthodontics (2nd Edition) were written for dental undergraduate students who are preparing for the various post-graduate entrance exams. It also helps the post-graduate students of orthodontics who are preparing for the Orthodontics Board Examination. Orthodontic Enquest has been written for orthodontic post-graduates. At present, he is working on a novel orthodontic mini-screws implant design, bio-conjugation of titanium alloys with bio-molecules, and nanoparticle doping of the biomolecules for dental applications.
