Topics to be Covered:

  • Dr. Glenn Clark, Dr. Satish Kumar, Dr. Parish Sedghizadeh, Dr. Saravanan Ram
  • TOPICS TO BE COVERED: * Diagnostic principles and modalities for oral precancer and cancer detection, including surgical biopsy and its adjuncts, and the indications for the use of such modalities so they can be applied in every day practice. * Concepts in treatment and management of oral precancerous and cancerous lesions, and indications for referral. * Current understanding of the biomarkers or molecular markers involved in the progression or oral precancer and cancer, and what they mean to you. * Evaluation of the facial skin for sun-induced dermatoglyphic changes, and the recognition of morphologic patterns of various skin cancers clinically, including squamous cell carcinoma, basal cell carcinoma and melanoma. * Legal considerations and ramifications of failing to diagnose precancer or cancer, and your responsibility as an oral health care provider. UPON COMPLETION YOU WILL BE ABLE TO: * Detection of early oral cancer or precancerous lesions and manifestation of cancers affecting the facial skin * Principles of differential diagnosis with respect to oral cancer * Techniques for definitive diagnosis of oral precancer and cancer * Adjunct diagnostic methods for detecting precancerous or cancerous lesions * Concepts in treatment and management of precancerous and cancerous lesions * Indications for referral and medico-legal issues * Dental and oral management of the cancer patient after surgery and/or radiation therapy or chemotherapy * Molecular and genetic advancements with respect to oral precancer and cancer * Biomarkers involved in oral cancer progression and what they mean to you

Description:

This is the first of a 2-part Continuing Education course series, intended to give clinicians a practical and logical approach to recognizing, diagnosing and treating various oral and maxillofacial diseases. Predominantly a casebased approach by expert faculty, this series, or each individual course, would be particularly useful for general dentists, dental specialists, dental hygienists or assistants in addition to medical health care professionals involved in the clinical care of patients. These courses present a great opportunity to brush up your diagnostic skills, gain insight into modern management of techniques and principles, or acquire new areas of expertise that can be applied to your clinical practice. These courses will also address possible legal ramifications from failing to diagnose pathology. Legal case experience by expert faculty will teach participants "what not to do" in practice. This course provides an update on current concepts in the diagnosis and management of oral cancer, including risk factors and early clinical detection of precancerous or cancerous lesions. Faculty will present current concepts regarding the molecular biomarkers involved in oral cancer progression and will discuss how to identify various skin cancers during head and neck clinical exam, recognizing that many cancers of the face and lips are sun-induced malignancies and are far more prevalent than oral cancer. Concepts of clinical recognition of benign versus malignant tumors will be addressed as well as diagnostic principles and techniques and their potential applications for precancer and cancer detection, including surgical biopsy, punch biopsy, cytology (i.e. Brush Biopsy®), Toluidine blue, and chemiluminescence (i.e. Vizilite®, Microlux DL®, VELscope®).
