La obra es totalmente novedosa en su formato y presentación, ya que es la primera vez que se edita un libro de medicina bucal en formato bolsillo. Se estructura en un formato de doble página en donde en la parte izquierda se describe brevemente la patología y a la derecha se ilustra con magníficas fotografías clínicas a todo color.
Los temas se presentan inicialmente por síntomas y signos, y a continuación, se describen las diferentes localizaciones y se presentan resúmenes de las afecciones que aparecen más comunmente.
* Su objetivo principal es facilitar el correcto diagnóstico y el plan de tratamiento. Cada uno de los capítulos se inicia con unos puntos clave sobre la patología, posteriormente hay un apartado de posibles causas que lo pueden provocar y finalmente un algoritmo para el correcto diagnóstico.
