About the book

Dentists regularly encounter oral lesions in practice. A variety of lesions can occur in the oral cavity, and in some cases, these lesions can also be associated with dermatological disorders or with an underlying systemic disease. For proper diagnosis of oral lesions, detailed patient history, extra-oral and intra-oral examination and in some cases biopsy, microbiological sampling and blood tests are required. Referral to a dermatologist or specialist in internal medicine may also be be indicated. After the diagnosis of a lesion is made, an appropriate treatment method should be considered.

Some lesions are treated medically while some require more complex methods such as surgery, cryotherapy and soft tissue laser application. The aim of this book is to provide the readers with a comprehensive literature overview about the diagnosis and treatment of oral lesions.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Edi Lipovic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
