It is an honor for me to write the foreword to my own student's special book on, Crowns in Pediatric Dentistry. This informative book provides information on conventional and newer crowns as well as advanced techniques. It covers illustrations, principles and colorful images for better understanding. The book helps the readers to improve their current concepts and to upgrade their knowledge and techniques for crown placement and to solve the clinical problems.
I am confident that the book written by Dr Prashant Babaji will be very useful for clinicians, undergraduate and postgraduate dental students for successful dental practice.

Nowadays various pediatric crowns are available, but available information and long-term clinical studies about it are very scarce. Pediatric crown development has moved from conventional unesthetic stainless steel crown to strip crown, ceramic and preveneered crown with better clinical success and patient and parent satisfaction. Hence, the present book aims to provide information about conventional and newer pediatric anterior and posterior crowns.
