This course will cover the seven diagnostic methods that contribute to a final diagnosis. They
include the following features: clinical, radiographic, historical, laboratory, surgical, therapeutic,
and differential. Several lesions and conditions in each category will be discussed from etiology to
prognosis. The strength of the diagnosis for each lesion will come from one, two or more diagno-
stic methods. Clinical and radiographic features will be stressed. Documentation procedures,
biopsy techniques and referral options will also be covered. One patient dies every hour of every
day from oral cancer. Every member of the dental team can help to reduce this dreadful statistic
and this course promises to show you how!
This course is sponsored by an educational grant from Philips Sonicare.
