Title: Prospect of oral medicine and the pedagogical deficiencies


International descriptions reflect that Oral Medicine is a specialty at the juncture of Medicine and Dentistry. Oral medicine is principally considered as medical specialty but ended up in dentistry, and now suffers an “identity crisis,” bestriding both dentistry and medicine. We discuss the toil faced by the subject and the specialists in India and Internationally in the curriculum, at awareness level and the perseverance to change the consequence. Despite these apprehensions, we are quite passionate about the future. This enthusiasm is balanced by the realization that some impairments lie in our path. These collective signals are a clear wake-up call for our discipline.
