A strategic way of learning how to diagnose and manage oral diseases is organized by University of Washington (UW) School of Dentistry and will be held on Mar 15, 2019 at Washington State History Museum Parking Lot, Tacoma, Washington, United States of America. The target audience for this medical event is specialists, dentists, dental hygienists and dental assistants. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 7.00 CE Credits. Course Description: Teaching and learning interactively can be challenging, but it is highly effective and rewarding for the audience. This energetic, engaging course creates an environment in which attendees can make a differential diagnosis and consider how to interact with the patient regarding a certain clinical presentation. It is open to audience commentary in order to test attendees’ knowledge of everyday oral pathology conditions. Some of these have benign-looking clinical presentations when, in actuality, they are serious and be malignant conditions; others are the exact opposite: looking aggressive but carrying a perfectly benign diagnosis. The course will cover the following subjects: soft tissue and bone lesions, including diseases of the surface epithelium, focusing on early detection of cancer; gingival swellings in adults and children; palatal swellings, focusing on salivary gland pathology; oral ulcers, focusing on immune mediated diseases, but also covering the oral manifestation of gastrointestinal diseases; brown spot(s), focusing on drug-induced spots and oral malignant melanoma; papillary lesions, focusing on oral HPV-associated diseases; unilocular radiolucencies, focusing on aggressive oral cysts and cancer metastasis; and multilocular radiolucencies, focusing on aggressive odontogenic neoplasms, completely radiopaque lesions (single and multiple), and the latter’s association with Gardner’s syndrome. Every category will start with several clinical cases which will be presented anonymously, seeking the audience’s chosen diagnosis from a prepared differential diagnosis using teaching clickers. Each case will serve as the basis for an in-depth discussion of the associated topic as mentioned above. Each condition will be discussed, focusing on the clinical presentation, final diagnosis, treatment, recurrence rate, and overall prognosis. Clinicians will be provided with tools to base their judgment on facts, not uncertain conjecture. This enthusiastic course will provide necessary information directly applicable to improving the everyday practice of diagnosing oral diseases. Course Objectives are: As a result of attending this course, you will be able to: • Use facts to determine whether or not to biopsy a lesion. • Identify early signs of oral cancer. • Know what to watch for when keeping patients on followup. • Know when to rebiopsy a lesion that was already biopsied. • Formulate an applied differential diagnosis specific to various oral diseases. • Understand the oral manifestation of certain systemic diseases. • Understand the relationship between HPV and oral cancer and whether or not testing for HPV is helpful. • Understand radiolucent and radiopaque lesions of the jaw
