Abstract

INTRODUCTION It is accepted that the gold standard for most lesions is the microscope analysis. Any abnormal tissues removed from the oral and maxillofacial regions should preferably be submitted to an oral and maxillofacial pathologist. MATERIALS AND METHODS A cross‐sectional study was conducted through an online survey from January 2021 to March 2020 among Oral Surgeons, Oral Medicine and Oral Oncologists working/practising in Private dental institutions and also private clinical setup. RESULTS Out of 100 participants, 31% were below 25 years of age, 38% of participants belonged to the age group of 25-35, 25% of participants belonged to the age group of 36-45 and 6% belonged to the age group above 45 years. Twenty eight percent of the participants were postgraduates belonging to the age group 25-35, with P=0.000, which is highly significant. Sixty percent of the participants were postgraduates while 29% of the participants were specialists, 9% were undergraduates and 2% belonged to other specialties DISCUSSION Stimulatory training courses for undergraduates to perform biopsy can increase the confidence in the individual and a little forethought can substantially improve the diagnostic value which can be achieved by good interaction between the Oral pathologists and the Clinicians
