Clinical Oral Pathology Update
Clinical Oral Pathology Update
Course Summary: The course is designed to provide a thorough review and update of the more common oral diseases seen in private practice. The emphasis will be on clinical features and include therapeutic management. A portion of the course will be interactive and group diseases according to common clinical presentations, i.e, white, red, pigmented lesions, ulcers and mass lesion.
