Course Description

This course will present common oral conditions encountered as a patient chief complaint or as a finding in the comprehensive clinical exam. Diagnostic cues and various treatment modalities will be discussed for those lesions that cause patient and practitioner concerns. Lesions noted on radiographs will be discussed, highlighting when to intervene and when to observe. Habits such as vaping, and CBD products as well as controversial holistic practices will be addressed. The presentation format and opportunity for interactive discussion should aid members of the dental health care team in providing the best care for their patients.


Upon successful completion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • identify and describe lesions commonly seen in dental practice
  • categorize commonly encountered red and white lesions
  • recognize oral changes associated with various habits
  • know how to inform patients of detrimental effects of unproven treatments


This Continuing education course is sponsored in part by the T. F. Bowser Memorial Fund.
