This course is recommended for dentists, dental hygienists and dental assistants.
This course is designed to aid the dental professional with the detection, diagnosis and management of lesions and conditions encountered in daily practice. Case-based examples will be used to help participants recognize the signs and symptoms of common as well as significant oral diseases. Special emphasis will be given to: 1) skin lesions, 2) ulcerative conditions and 3) radiographic abnormalities. An interactive format helps to engage participants and reinforce current concepts in disease pathogenesis and treatment.

- To review the clinical features of common and potentially significant conditions associated with oral ulcers and discuss treatment options
