This text provides high quality colour photographs of common oral diseases. The illustrations are arranged according to their important clinical characteristics. Coverage is broadly based. Each full page colour plate consists of eight illustrations of disorders closely related by appearance or aetiology, for comparison and differentiation. On the pages opposite to the clinical photographs, concise, informative text discusses aetiology, course and treatment as well as diagnostic information relating to location, sex, age and race. Appendices provide flow charts, RX abbreviations, therapeutic protocols and a self-assessment quiz.
