Course Description

Oral Pathology

This live webinar is designed to be a full review of radiology for Dentists and Dental Hygienists. Dr. Svirsky will walk the audience through a number of common cases as a way of reacquianting the audience with key radiographic entities common to the dental practice. There will be an emphasis on common radiolucent and radiopaque lesions. In addition, Dr. Svirsky will spend some time highlighting the bizarre and unusual cases he’s encountered throughout his career.

By the end of this course, attendees will be well equipped to go back and make a difference in the diagnosis and treatment of oral diseases. This is the perfect course for dental professionals wanting a thorough review of radiology – everything you’ve learned in school, brought to you in shades of grey!
