"[The book] will serve as an excellent ready reference." - Christopher Smith in Doody's Journal

"Oral Pathology should retain its place as "essential reading" in all dental curricula. Although this book is aimed at undergraduate dental students, I would not hesitate to recommend it as a useful book for general dental practitioners and postgraduate students aiming to further their knowledge in the field of oral pathology." - A. V. Jones in British Dental Journal, Vol.199, No.2, July 2005
