Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology is the specialty of dentistry and pathology which deals with the nature of disease, identification, and management of diseases affecting the oral and maxillofacial regions. Additionally, it investigates the causes, processes and effects of these diseases. The practice of oral and maxillofacial pathology includes research and diagnosis using clinical, radiographic, microscopic and biochemical examination as well as management of patients. Oral pathology involves diagnosing and treating diseases that affect the mouth, such as cysts, tumors, precancerous and cancerous lesions.
Our oral and maxillofacial pathologists (OMP) are uniquely trained to: efficiently address both diagnosis and treatment of oral disease; rapidly and reliably establish the critical connection between oral disease and systemic disease as well as combine expertise in histopathologic diagnosis, clinical diagnosis and treatment.
