Thursday Courses
Th305 - Cases Only a Mother Could Love
Time: 9 AM - 12 PM
Type: General    Handouts: Yes
Dentist Fee: $0.00  Other Fee: $0.00

This fun, new interactive course will be a continuation of "A Patient Can Have as Many Diseases as THEY Pleases" and will present a potpourri of interesting cases seen by or emailed to me over the years. Participants will learn how to describe a lesion, develop a differential diagnosis and treat the condition. I will show how I approach cases and arrive at a diagnosis. The audience will help diagnose as I play the patient. Some unusual “things” might pop up! Get ready to laugh, learn and make a major difference in the lives of your patients. It is not necessary to have attended the previous year's course.

Friday Courses
Fr328 - Oral Pathology Playhouse: Name that Disease and Other Party Games
Time: 9 AM - 12 PM
Type: General    Handouts: Yes
Dentist Fee: $0.00  Other Fee: $0.00

This course is an oral pathology adventure in the form of a self-assessment test...and everyone gets 100%! At the completion of this course you will be an expert on the soft tissue and radiographic entities that every dentist and hygienist should know. We go over the entities together in an interactive format so you can see what you really know and what you have forgotten since school. This is the test that I give the junior dental students that they have to pass at 100% proficiency to go on to the senior year. Let’s have some fun and learn material that will help protect the health and welfare of our patients.
