REVIEWER'S EXPERT OPINION

Janet H. Southerland, DDS, MPH, PhD(Meharry Medical College School of Dentistry)

Description

ne and pathology with a focus on the diagnosis and management of oral disorders. Chapters outline key features of diseases, classification, and treatment indications and include high quality photographs, x-rays, and pathology slides.

Purpose

mation to improve skills and expertise in oral diagnosis as well as basic knowledge on both hard and soft tissue pathology. The book is a one-stop reference for diagnosing and managing systemic disease and oral pathology.

Audience

The authors intend this book for postgraduates, specialist trainees, interns, and practitioners involved in the care of patients with oral disease and oral disease as a manifestation of systems disease. It is also appropriate for practitioners involved in the management and care of medically complex patients and in need of a guide to aid in diagnosis and care management. The authors are well credentialed authorities in the field.

Features

The book covers all aspects of oral disease and pathology from developmental anomalies to ulcerations, infections, and syndromes. In addition common oral problems such as caries, periodontal disease, and xerostomia are covered.

The photographs, histopathology slides, and radiographs are of high quality.

The self-assessment questions at the end of each chapter assist with retention of information, as do the tables with key features and management recommendations.

The chapter covering forensic dentistry seems to be somewhat out of place in a book of this type

Assessment

This is a good quality overview of oral medicine and pathology that is also a good reference.
