CRADLE TO GRAVE: ORAL PATHOLOGY THROUGH THE LIFESPAN
This course is an overview of oral pathologic conditions affecting children, adults, and geriatric clients. It includes both common and uncommon conditions presented in a fun, engaging manner. Many of the images and cases presented are from Ms. Lukes’ own personal collection of lesion images accumulated over 38 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. Comparison images for inclusion in the differential diagnosis will also be presented and discussed. This course can serve as an excellent update for seasoned hygienists/dentists or a relevant review for new graduates entering the field.
