Preface To Third Edition

As we continue to revise this book. some of our practices are becoming traditions. one of which is changing a few contributors for each edition. Some of the contributors are changed because the)‘ have shifted their interest in research or teaching: some because they have retired or have given up teaching positions. It is a sad fact that some of our co-Workers have passed away. Gottlieb. Diamond. .\'uckolls have left us at a most regrettable time when their experiences in research as Well as in teaching would have aided us most.

“I have new men with us—new as contributors to this book, but well known as research men and teachers. We happily welcome them. The changes that have been made in this third edition are mainly due to their eiforts.

Many changes have been made in the chapter on "Enamel," with numerous new illustrations. The chapter on the “Glands of the Oral Cavity" was reduced and simplified, eliminating some of the rather cumbersome details. It was our aim in this revision to eliminate throughout the book statements that could be misinterpreted or cause some confusion. Twelve new illustrations, some of them composite. are replacing old ones We are grateful to our critics who have pointed out the weak spots in our text and invite all our students and their teachers to make suggestions which will improve this book. It is our hope that this material will remain a basic tool in creating better and better dentists.

Preface To First Edition

Oral histology and embryology have rapidly advanced during the last decade; an increase of detailed observations led to Widely divergent interpretations. In writing this book it was the task of the contributors to sift the material, coordinate different opinions, and present a. uniform and selected review of modern knowledge. It is hoped that the reader will realize that this presentation is in no way final but a basis for study and further investigation.

In compiling this text a new plan was adopted. The chapters were drafted by recognized authorities on the specific subject, and each author ’s manuscript was submitted to all other contributors for discussion. Some did not Write a chapter but aided the eflort considerably by their remarks and criticism. It was the task of the editor to coordinate the different viewpoints which were presented. Thus, the chapters had to be re-drafted several times, according to the suggestions made by the collaborators.

Whfle it is true that the co-workers cannot accept every detail presented in this book, the major difierences in concept were successively eliminated. We pooled our resources, selected the best illustrations from our material, and we believe that the result presents a sincere effort in scientific cooperation.

We are greatly indebted to Mr. P. M. Orlopp, research assistant and photographer of the Foundation for Dental Research, Chicago College of Dental Surgery, for his excellent work in preparing the photographic prints, and to Mrs. P. Slatter for her untiring and efficient secretarial work.

We hope that this textbook will be of help, not only to undergraduate students, but also to those who work for graduate degrees, and to the practicing dentist. Every chapter contains remarks on the clinical application of the basic biologic principles.

We dedicate this book to those who recognize that clinical procedure is based on the knowledge of normal structure.
