The authors of Essentials of Oral Medicine prepared the text to help clinicians improve patient evaluation and treatment, deliver optimal patient care, and prevent complications. Extensive knowledge of dental, medical, and basic sciences is required for clinicians managing diseases and conditions which affect the head and neck. Disorders may reflect local disease, oral manifestations of systemic diseases, or oral conditions that can affect other organ systems. Continuing education in the field never ends.

Essentials of Oral Medicine is organized into five sections: The Patient Workup, The Medically Compromised Patient, Infectious Disease, Soft Tissue Disease, and Facial Pain and Neurology. Color illustrations aid the the reader classifying deviations and disease.
