Oral pathology is an important branch of medical science. To be more specific, it is the specialty of dentistry. And it is also the discipline of pathology. Therefore, in oral pathology, we study diseases. Especially, we investigated the nature, recognition, and treatment of diseases. These diseases are ones affecting your oral and maxillofacial regions. More simply, in oral pathology, you study the diseases from a cause and effect point of view.

J Oral Maxillofac Pathol [serial online] 2009 [cited 2023 Feb 7];13:46. Available from: Shafer's Textbook of Oral Pathology was first published in 1958 by Drs. Shafer WG, Hine MK, and Levy BM. Since its first edition there have been constant changes in concepts, new entities, and advances in the field of clinical, histopathological, and molecular pathology which have always warranted revision. With this aim, Drs. Rajendran R and Sivapathasundharam B revised and updated the fourth edition after a long span of 23 years. Keeping in mind the wide readership of this book, and the need to upgrade even the minor changes in the concepts, the authors have upgraded the text further, as the sixth edition of Shafer's Textbook of Oral Pathology. Dr. R. Rajendran is a renowned oral pathologist who has served as Professor and Head, Department of Oral Pathology in Government Dental Colleges of Trivandrum and Kottayam. He is currently working as Professor in Division of Oral Pathology, College of Dentistry, King Saud University, Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. He has large number of original research and review publications to his credit in reputed national and international journals.Dr. B. Sivapathasundharam, widely known as Honorary Editor, Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology, and Editor-in-Chief of Indian Journal of Dental Research and Journal of Forensic Odontology, is currently working as Professor and Head, Department of Oral Pathology, Meenakshi Ammal Dental College, Chennai, India. He has several publications in reputed national and international journals. The sixth edition has been published in a new format with four-color printing and increased font size, to enable easy readability. With the change in format of printing, most of the figures are colored and new figures and illustrations have been incorporated for an easier understanding. The various updates in the field of oral pathology have been included in all the chapters and also in the references section at the end of each chapter. Changes and updates in the field of HIV infection, forensic odontology, tropical epidemiology, and prevention of dental caries are included in this edition.A chapter on 'histotechniques, staining, and immunohistochemistry' is highly essential in any oral pathology textbook as these techniques go hand-in-hand with oral pathology, and every oral pathologist is deemed to be aware of these techniques and the various updates in them. With this in mind, the authors have included a new chapter on histotechniques, staining, and immunohistochemistry. With these additional features and updated text, I am sure this book will be of immense help to undergraduate and postgraduate students and the dental faculty.
