Hickory, a Washington DC orthodontist, is well-qualified to contribute to one of the newest textbooks on facial aesthetics. The textbook, published by Wiley-Blackwell, strives to portray a holistic approach to facial treatments from medical to dental.

He continues to offer orthodontic courses internationally and hosts doctors from Europe and Asia for advanced courses. He carries this excitement for education into his publishing endeavors.
