      Dentofacial deformity affects patients’ health, function, aesthetics, and self-esteem. The surgical correction of the deformed facial skeleton and the overlying soft tissue brings improvement to these important aspects of patients. In the past two decades, orthognathic surgery has further matured in the techniques as well as the treatment concept. Various forms of dentofacial deformity require specific considerations in surgical planning. There are some deformities that are more prevalent in certain ethnic groups, which require adjunctive procedures for their correction. There are newer concepts in aesthetic and the treatment protocol that are proposed, which could help to improve the overall treatment outcome and time.

This issue focuses to describe the broad overview of the contemporary management of patients with dentofacial deformities from different parts of the world.
