Published by Texas Academy of General Dentistry
and Mississippi Academy of General Dentistry
Learning Objectives
  • Illustration and discussion of clinical changes
  • Differential diagnosis

Oral cancer is one of the few oral conditions that is fatal and causes appreciable morbidity. Therapeutic intervention in the early stages provides patients their greatest chance to survive. The course emphasizes clinical relevance by illustrating and discussing clinical changes, which may represent early malignant or premalignant lesions. You will learn differential diagnosis by illustrating other pathologic conditions that share clinical features with cancerous and precancerous lesions. With a better understanding of the disease and the ability to recognize early lesions, dental health care providers will be in a unique position within the health professions to decrease significantly the mortality and morbidity of oral cancer.

This course can only be taken individually. After successfully completing the course you will receive a personalized certificate of completion.

Upon purchase, you will have 45 days to complete the program for credit. You will still have access to the program after the 45 days, but will not be able to receive credit.
