This book was completed through the love, support, and patience of my wife, Millie, and my children, Austen and Meredith. They became all too knowledgeable about the ''Oral Cavity Textbook'' but in an entirely different way than we as clinicians view this text! Additionally, I would like to give credit to the authors and all physicians, dentists, and health care professionals who have sacrificed their lives to help the lives of others stricken with head and neck cancers through patient care, research, and education.

I would like to dedicate my efforts on this text to my wife Susan Girod who strives to keep me sane and grounded through my many projects and has done such a wonderful job with our children Katelyn, Callie and Jimmy. I thank them all for their patience and love. I would like to thank my professional mentor Dr. Charles Cummings for his inspiration, insight, humor and support throughout my career and during this endeavor.

Thanks also to Heather Barnhart, RN for her tireless support and endless compassion for the many cancer patients we have worked with over the last 11 years who have served as the motivation for this text. Lastly, I would like to thank the faculty, residents, students and staff of the Department of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Kansas for the years of dedication and hard work for the sake of our patients.
