Oral Malignancies and Mimics (ACDE)

December 8

An ACDE Joint Provider Live Webinar Series …
Presented by

It is critical for clinicians to be able to appropriately distinguish benign from malignant oral diseases, but even the most frequently seen conditions in oral pathology may be diagnostically challenging for  clinicians who do not encounter them regularly. This presentation will help in the identification of both common innocuous and the more clinically significant lesions, including atypical presentations that vary from classic textbook pictures.

At the conclusion of this course, you should be able to:

  • Clinically distinguish common benign reactive, immune-mediated, and infectious disorders of the oral mucosa from malignant and pre-malignant lesions.
  • Formulate reasonable differentials based on clinical presentations and histories.
  • Assess when patients are best served with referral to specialists, or when they may be managed locally with immune-suppressive medications or antimicrobial agents.

Presented by:

Dr. Mark Lerman is the Division Director of Oral Pathology and Chair of the Department of Diagnostic Sciences at the Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. He is appointed as a professor and divides his time between teaching, clinical practice, and the school’s biopsy service.

After completing a general practice residency in dentistry at Harvard University and Brigham  and Women’s Hospital, he trained in oral and maxillofacial pathology at New York Hospital Medical Center of Queens in   New York City.
