This chapter on oral and maxillofacial surgery is well structured to guide a medical student through different areas: clinic, emergency department, theatre, and on the ward. It introduces a unique specialty that requires qualification in both medicine and dentistry, treating conditions that require expertise from both backgrounds. The chapter reviews the diagnosis and treatment of diseases affecting the mouth, jaws, face, and neck. An overview of common conditions faced in the emergency department is complemented by illustration of an orbital floor fracture. Complicated theatre procedures and examination procedures are summarized and pitched at an appropriate level for those looking to apply for medicine, and those in medical school.
