It is my privilege to write a few words about the Textbook of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.
Textbook of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is a well-orchestrated effort by the editor, Professor Dr (Mrs) Neelima Anil Malik, Formerly, Head, Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and Dean, Nair Hospital Dental College (NHDC), Mumbai, Maharashtra, India. She is an academician par excellence. This, coupled with her surgical skills and expertise in the field of oral and maxillofacial surgery, makes her an epitome for an ideal oral and maxillofacial surgeon and an eminent teacher.
The hallmark of the book is an extensive, point-wise coverage of the vast subject of oral and maxillofacial surgery in accordance with the syllabus of Dental Council of India and universities all over India. I am confident that the lucid, wellillustrated book with easy language and concise tables will make an interesting and informative reading for undergraduate students.
The chapters have been authored by dedicated, outstanding, experienced clinicians and eminent teachers from India and will provide guidelines to safe and sound operative techniques suitable for the Indian subcontinent.
