March 12: Diagnosis & Therapeutic Management of Challenging Lesions, Dr. Steven Vincent


April: NO MEETING


May 14: SDDS Annual Elections, Presentation by UW School of Dentistry Dean and CE Presentation by Dr. Sara Gordon

Oral Cancer: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

How can you tell whether a lesion is dangerous or not? By reviewing some clinical cases that turned out to be oral cancer, and some that didn’t, you will learn more about your role in the early diagnosis of oral cancer and precancer. You will review the recent ADA evidence-based guideline on evaluating these types of diagnostic dilemmas, and what the guideline says about the use of diagnostic adjuncts such as light-based methods. You will also get some useful tips on submitting biopsies, from a clinician who has been on both ends of the biopsy process for many years - the scalpel and the microscope.
