Diagnosis and Interpretation of Soft and Hard Tissue Abnormalities: When, Why, and How to Help Your Patients
Boston, MA •November 15, 2019 • 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Distinguishing benign pathology from clinically significant diseases may be challenging even for experienced clinicians. Providers must determine whether further evaluation or a biopsy is indicated and how to strike the right balance between potentially alarming patients unnecessarily and the risk of delaying the diagnosis of a malignancy.
This full-day course will help clinicians identify mucosal disease and radiographic pathology, including variants of the normal anatomy and atypical presentations that vary from classic textbook pictures.
The hands-on portion of the program is designed to allow general dentists, specialists, residents, and students to feel comfortable performing uncomplicated soft-tissue biopsies under local anesthesia in out-patient settings by providing instruction in biopsy technique on synthetic mucosa.
Attendees are encouraged to bring their smartphones, laptops, tablets, or other WiFi-enabled devices to participate in differential diagnosis exercises.
