Alex Smithson will discuss Recognising Dental Lesions and Strategies. Dental and oral lesions are very prevalent and yet often go undetected. Out of sight and out of mind in the oral cavity, problems can become very severe before any clinical signs and symptoms arise. Their tendency to progress and cause pain is well recognised in the human medical world and is also the case in veterinary patients. It is essential to be able to diagnose abnormalities at as early a stage as possible in order to minimise compromise to health and welfare. This webinar offers a practical guide to increasing your ability to identify dental and oral pathologies and applying that to treatment planning. Treatment options are discussed to assist you in educating and advising clients and offering optimal solutions for you, your practice and your patient.
