Dental examination begins with inspection of the facial skin and oral soft tissues. It is not uncommon for lesions to be identified and the dentist should be able to assess, document and either manage or refer appropriately.

Dr. Hagen Klieb (Oral Pathologist) will be reviewing a common-sense diagnostic approach for oral lesions, namely, white lesions, pigmented lesions and autoimmune disorders (eg. lichen planus, aphthous stomatitis). Management will be reviewed. There will also be discussion of the changing pattern of HPV-associated head and neck malignancies with emphasis on what the dentist must know.
