About this Event

Clinical Oral Pathology Update Course Summary:  The course is designed to provide a thorough review and update of the more common oral diseases seen in private practice. The emphasis will be on clinical features and include therapeutic management. A portion of the course will be interactive and group diseases according to common clinical presentations, i.e, white, red, pigmented lesions, ulcers and mass lesion. Reviewing oral pathology in a differential diagnosis format should provide a practical approach to the recognition, diagnosis, and management of these problems.
