Description

This course will present an interesting potpourri of a wide range of oral pathology cases from my practice in Winnipeg. It covers a variety of conditions encountered in general and specialty dental practices. General dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants, specialists, denturist, ENT physicians and even family physicians encounter oral lesions in their day-to-day clinical practice.  Recognition and further management of these conditions is extremely vital as the level of significance/seriousness varies from one lesion to another.

Therefore, this course aims to provide a detailed overview of the etiology, clinical features, histopathological features and differential diagnosis for some of the routinely encountered lesions from my oral pathology practice in Winnipeg. This course will also address some of the important aspects of oral pathology referrals. We expect it to provide a clear guide for clinicians in formulating a differential diagnosis, which further leads to appropriate treatments and referrals if indicated.

Objectives

  • Recognize the lesions of the oral cavity that is commonly referred to an oral pathology practice.
  • Analyse and determine when and how to make a referral to an oral pathologist
  • Identify a differential diagnosis for these lesions of the oral cavity
  • Identify the commonly employed diagnostic and management strategies for these lesions of the oral cavity
