The 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 diagnostic methods. This methodical approach has been found to be very helpful in the diagnostic process. Lesions will include those associated with the inflammatory process, immunity, infectious disease, developmental disorders, genetics, neoplasia, and oral manifestations of systemic disease. Documentation procedures, biopsy techniques and referral options will also be covered. One patient dies every hour of every day from oral cancer. You will return to clinical practice with an enlightened approach to managing oral lesions and conditions.
This course is sponsored by an educational grant from Philips Sonicare.
