About the Course

Oral lesions are a common finding in dental practice. During this course, attendees will, not only receive a refresher program on the topic of oral pathology, but will also be brought up to date with the most current, relevant discussions of widespread oral pathologies, including their origins, treatments and outcomes. The audience will learn valuable insights and techniques that can be immediately introduced into their clinical practice to improve early detection and patient care.

This session will enable participants to:
- Learn the histology and pathogenesis of common and frequently encountered oral lesions, pathologies and the oral manifestations of systemic disease encountered in dental practice
- Recognize and differentiate red, white and pigmented oral lesions and the scientifically supported protocol for evaluation and treatment
- Recognize tissue alteration due to physical trauma or habit, localized disease and systemic illness.
- Learn and implement a succinct yet thorough extra/intra oral examination process into routine dental practice
