Course Description:

In the course of professional education, the goal often becomes passing the test, as the expectation of actually having a patient with one or more of the conditions you had to memorize seems very remote. The course is designed to provide dentists, dental hygienists and dental assistants with contemporary information on diseases and conditions which are commonly encountered in a dental office as well as a few uncommon, but potentially significant, disorders. Emphasis will be placed on the clinical recognition, diagnosis, and management of these entities.
