Course Description

Color Changes & Pigmented Lesions
Put on your thinking caps on as your diagnostic abilities are about to be challenged! Real world cases will frame a discussion on the differential diagnosis process. The 1st part of this presentation will focus on white, red, blue, brown, and yellow conditions which could represent infections, cancer, systemic conditions, and more. You’ll learn clinical tidbits on how to distinguish these oral conditions and pearls to manage your patients. Lots and lots of clinical cases will make this lively presentation come to life. In this lecture, the “mysteries” of pathology will become clear, allowing you to communicate more effectively with your patients regarding their oral diseases. You will learn key points to help make your life easier and practical information that can be immediately applied.

  1. Cases Highlighting the Differential Diagnosis Process
  2. Review of Cases & Their Management
    1. White lesions: can be scraped off
    2. White lesions: cannot be scraped off
    3. Red, blue, and/or purple lesions
    4. Petechial and other bleeds
    5. Brown gray, and/or black lesions
    6. Yellow lesions

Ulcers & Lumps and Bumps
This next session will focus on ulcerative lesions and soft tissue growths. Clinical cases will launch a discussion of how to differentiate oral ulcers that may be infectious, traumatic, or malignant. Soft tissue lumps and bumps are common in our world and it is important to differentiate between reactive, tumorous, and infectious conditions. You’ll learn clinical tidbits on how to distinguish these oral conditions and pearls to manage your patients. A myriad of topics and cutting edge information will be discussed, and include: What is that thing and how do I treat it? What caused this and how do I prevent it? And if it hurts, what will make it feel better?

  1. Cases Highlighting the Differential Diagnosis Process
  2. Review of Cases & Their Management
    1. Ulcers: short term
    2. Ulcers: long term
    3. Papillary growths
    4. Lumps & bumps: reactive lesions
    5. Lumps & bumps: cysts & neoplasms

Radiographic Pathology & Tooth Abnormalities
The final section of the day will focus on radiographic and tooth abnormalities. “Reading” radiographs is essential to be able to distinguish which conditions can be ignored versus monitored or biopsied. Oodles of clinical cases will be highlighted representing the gamut of developmental, reactive, and neoplastic bone and tooth pathologies. Put on your thinking caps on as your diagnostic abilities will be tested. Real world cases will frame a discussion on the differential diagnosis process. You’ll learn clinical tidbits on how to distinguish these oral conditions and pearls to manage your patients.

  1. Cases Highlighting the Differential Diagnosis Process
  2. Review of Cases & Their Management
    1. Radiolucent lesions: well-circumscribed
    2. Radiolucent lesions: poorly defined
    3. Radiopacities and mixed lesions
    4. Multifocal lesions
    5. Soft tissue radiopacities
    6. Tooth abnormalities



Dr. T’s sessions will include a lecture format to present the subject information incorporating numerous clinical examples to highlight the material. Personal anecdotes, lessons learned, and audience participation will accentuate key points. The interactive approach will include opportunities to ask questions, share information, and have further discussions throughout the day."
