Course description

Benign? Not So Fast: Challenging Oral Diseases and the Tools to Decipher Them - An Update in Oral Pathology

Tuesday, Nov. 14, 2017
Presented by Dolphine Oda, BDS, MSc 

This all-day course will cover lesions in nine categories that have benign-looking clinical presentations when, in actuality, most carry a serious or frank malignant diagnosis.  The course will cover: soft tissue and bone lesions including diseases of the surface epithelium; gingival swellings in adults and children; palatal swellings; oral ulcers; brown spot(s); multiple papillary lesions; unilocular radiolucencies; multilocular radiolucencies. Every category will start with a clinical case which will be discussed interactively, seeking a differential diagnosis from the audience.  The case will serve as the basis for an in-depth discussion of the differential diagnosis, clinical presentation, and final diagnosis based on the histology.  Treatment at every level, recurrence rate, and overall prognosis will also be discussed.  Clinicians will leave this program with ample knowledge to use when deciding whether or not a certain presentation is truly benign.  They will be provided with tools to base their judgment on facts, not uncertain conjecture. It will provide necessary information directly applicable to improving the everyday practice of diagnosing oral diseases.
