Now expanded and in full colour throughout, Oral Microbiology retains its unique ecological approach to the subject which helps the reader determine whether an organism will have a pathogenic or commensal relationship at a given site.

In the new edition, greater emphasis is placed on the role of current molecular biology techniques in the understanding of oral microbes. The book also provides insight into current therapeutic and prophylactic antibiotic use, infection control, and the relationships between oral and general health. New authorship also offers additional expertise on viral and fungal pathogens and the role of oral microbes in acute and chronic infections.

Oral Microbiology provides a comprehensive coverage of the subject which will be essential to those with a specific interest in dentistry as well as those with a more general interest in host-microbe interactions and in microbial ecology. The book is suitable for undergraduate and postgraduate dental students, research workers, and a wide range of clinical dental professionals.

Key Features

  • Successfully describes the complex relationship between the resident oral microflora and the host in health and disease
  • Retains a unique ecological approach to the subject which benefits the reader by providing a clear set of principles to explain the underlying issues that determine whether the microflora will have a beneficial or an adverse relationship with the host at a particular site

David Williams

Dr. Williams currently leads the Oral Microbiology Group based at the School of Dentistry, at Cardiff University, Cardiff, UK. Since Dr. Williams’ first degree (Cardiff University), he has worked in the pharmaceutical industry, food microbiology and as an academic researcher. Having completed a PhD at the School of Dentistry in Cardiff on the immunopathogenesis of oral candidosis, Dr. Williams’ research has continued within Cardiff University and primarily focuses within the field of Clinical Microbiology with an emphasis on studies involving microbial biofilms. Dr. Williams’ research encompasses investigating biofilm susceptibility to antimicrobial agents, expression of virulence factors such as hydrolytic enzyme production, adhesion, and microbial modulation of innate immune responses. Of particular interest has been research into the development of biomaterials (e.g. silicone rubber, acrylic, titanium) to inhibit biofilm formation on medical devices. Dr. Williams is a previous recipient of the Senior Colgate Award (British Society for Oral and Dental Research) and the International Hatton Award (The International Association for Dental Research).
