Clinical Oral Medicine and Pathology, is a clinically relevant and accessible resource for health care professionals that truly bridges the worlds of dentistry and medicine. This handbook of oral medicine and oral pathology serves as a highly readable guide for diagnosis and treatment of commonly encountered oral conditions.
