From the best ways to use your eyes and your hands to examine the structures of the oral cavity to the most meaningful application of advanced modalities such as panoramic radiography, cone beam computed tomography, biopsy or other adjunctive tests, this session will highlight some of the approaches that will allow clinicians to most efficiently use some of the diagnostic aids at their disposal.
