Oral Medicine originated in a series of articles written for the British Dental Journal on 'Oral Medicine for the Dental Practitioner'. These were subsequently collected into a booklet which was used for undergraduate courses all over the world. In this fourth edition, the material has been gathered into a larger format and colour photographs have been used extensively for the first time in an attractive new design. Although the general outline has been maintained from previous editions, all the material has been thoroughly updated with new sections added on salivary gland diseases and psychogenic orofacial problems.
