This new interactive course for 2022 will present a potpourri of interesting cases seen by me or emailed to me over the past few years. In this course participants learn how to describe a lesion, develop a differential diagnosis and treat the condition. I will show how I approach cases and arrive at a diagnosis. The audience of course will help me to diagnose them as I play the patient. Some unusual “things” might pop up! A good time is to be had by all.
Develop a logical approach to the diagnosis of oral lesions.
Learn to describe and develop a differential diagnosis of various clinical cases.
Learn to treat selected oral diseases and distinguish “good from bad”.
