Mack KB, Phillips C, Jain N, Koroluk ND. Relationship between body mass index percentile and skeletal maturation and dental development in orthodontic patients. Am J Orthod Dentofacial Orthop 2013;143:228-34.

Acronyms used by the authors in this article were converted to the spelled-out terms. In the 6th paragraph of the Discussion, on page 233, the term “hand-wrist radiograph” was substituted for “cervical vertebral maturation” in 2 places. The AJO-DO apologizes for this error. The section should read:

The final model for cervical vertebral maturation stage also showed a strong impact of age and sex. The odds ratio for BMI percentile was 1.02 for each BMI percentile unit when holding other variables constant. For children at the extremes of the BMI percentiles, this equates to an odds ratio of 2.8, meaning that for 2 children of the same age, a child at the 95th percentile is nearly 3 times more likely to be in cervical vertebral maturation stage 4, 5, or 6 vs stages 1 through 3 than a child at the fifth percentile would be.
