The first three chapters set a foundation for assessing and diagnosing oral pathology. Chapter one is a review of oral anatomy and physiology. In the style of the book, this is supported with numerous full color images. Chapter two presents a stepwise guide on how to perform a proper oral examination. These techniques will allow practitioners to find the subtle pathologies listed within the book. Finally, dental radiology is presented. The first part of chapter three discusses proper techniques for obtaining quality dental radiographs, and the latter part discusses proper diagnosis of dental radiographs with high-quality digital images.
