Oral and maxillofacial pathology is a specialty of dentistry. Surgical pathology is a specialty of medicine. Dr. Robison’s training and board certification in both fields results in a fusion that allows understanding and evaluation of lesions from dental and medical perspectives. Cancers emanating throughout the body, namely breast, lung, kidney, leukemias and lymphomas, to name a few can metastasize to the oral cavity. Sometimes these oral lesions appear before the original tumor is detected. As an experienced and certified surgical pathologist, Dr. Robison can recognize, diagnose and report such lesions. This unparalleled bridging of both specialties is what sets Oral, Head and Neck Pathology Laboratory apart and above all others. It is the first and only laboratory of its kind in the nation.
