When to Worry about White Lesions in the Oral Cavity
An ACDE Series Webinar

Course Description:

While the principles of recognition and diagnosis of white lesions have been consistent over the years, the management of such lesions is under constant revision.

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:

● Formulate a differential diagnosis of white lesions based on location, demarcation, and texture
● Understand when and when not to biopsy a white lesion
● Interpret biopsy results
● Mange or know when to refer for definitive treatment when a white lesion is outside their scope of practice
