DENT 3125 - DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSIS OF ORAL LESIONS

[20 Credits]
This course provides an overview of the most common and significant oral and paraoral abnormalities clinicians are likely to encounter in practice. Cases are presented in photograph form, however students address the case in a problem solving format (CPC, clinical pathology conference) designed to closely simulate actual clinical settings. The course further develops critical thinking and refines the diagnostic skills expected of the dental student including correlation, of clinical, radiographic, and pathologic features in order to reach an appropriate differential diagnosis of a lesion once identified. Additionally, appropriate treatment and management of each entity presented is discussed. (Department of Diagnostic Sciences)
