Course Description:  “What are we really looking for? Oral Pathology Cases and Concepts”  This course is an overview of oral pathologic conditions from Ms. Lukes’ own personal collection of lesion images accumulated over 37 years as a dental hygienist and a 28-year teaching career. Etiology, clinical appearance, treatment options and relevance to dental hygiene are included for each lesion/condition. The course includes both common and uncommon conditions. Most images are from cases observed while in academia, as well as those encountered during annual mission work in Central Mexico. Comparison images for inclusion in the differential diagnosis will also be presented and discussed encouraging dental professionals to utilize all patient information when analyzing lesions. This course can serve as an excellent update for seasoned hygienists/dentists or a relevant review for new graduates.

12:45-2:15pm – General Session, Advocacy Forum
2:30-5pm – Jack Lincks, DDS and Randy DeMetter, DDS – Introduction to Updated Periodontal Disease Classification

-Examine the new model for identifying and diagnosing periodontal diseases that introduces a multi-dimensional staging and grading system, similar to the method used in oncology.
-Gain a deeper appreciation for the complex nature of each patient and his/her individual response to treatment.
-Identify the nuances of the new system and gain a comfort level with the “shades of gray” required to implement it.
