The case report is presented on an adult patient who had surgical-orthodontic treatment to solve her skeletal Class III malocclusion with mandible deviation. Conventional approach of surgical-orthodontic therapy requires a varied period of pre-surgical orthodontic treatment, the most important work to do is dental decompensation. The case was treated by surgical-first approach with minimal pre-surgical orthodontics, i.e. most of the detail orthodontic works (leveling, alignment and interdigitation) were done after orthognathic surgery. The total treatment time was 12 months. The facial symmetry and optimal occlusion were achieved.
