Course Outline

Lecture Session: Oral Pathology in the Dental Office, presented by Dr. Yang Gu

Course Outline

An unusual toothache, persistent dry mouth, desquamative gingivitis, and frictional keratosis are common oral path conditions seen in the dental office. Sometimes it is very difficult to distinguish them from orofacial pain, secondary burning mouth syndrome, oral lichenoid reaction and oral pre-cancer. This session will provide a big picture and practical methods for dealing with these conditions in your office.

Course Objective

At the end of the course, participants will be able to differentiate a cause-and-effect correlated condition from an idiopathic one, to understand related diagnostic criteria, and to know the process of collecting evidence. Topics to be covered include:

• Unusual toothache and orofacial pain

• Persistent dry mouth and secondary burning mouth syndrome

• Frictional keratosis and pre-cancer

Hands-on session: Mastering the Soft Tissue Biopsy, presented by Dr. Lisa Johnson

Course Outline

The course will include a review of the assessment of the pathological patient; the differential diagnosis of common pathoses in the general dental office; the different types of biopsy techniques; and an exploration of the histopathological handling of the specimen. The hands-on portion of the course will include biopsy techniques for a soft tissue biopsy using pig mandibles and tongues.

Course Objectives

By the end of the end of the course, participants will be able to determine when a pathology patient can be managed in the office, decide when to complete an incisional versus an excisional biopsy, and be familiar with protocols for a soft tissue biopsy. Topics to be covered include:

• Extraoral and intraoral assessment of the pathololgy patient

• Differential diagnosis of nodules, ulcers and pigmented/coloured lesions

• Protocol for completion of the soft tissue biopsy

• Specimen handling techniques

• Managing the pathology requisition form and pathology report
