Dance Grand Rounds: November 4, 2016

Location:  Civiletti Conference Center
Time:  7:30am
Presenter: James J. Sciubba, DMD, PhD
Title: Overview of Non-neoplastic Oral and Oropharyngeal Mucosal Diseases
Needs Assessment:
Non-neoplastic diseases and conditions affecting the mucosal surface of the oral cavity and oropharynx are often difficult to diagnose and manage, and are often the source of significant morbidity, delayed diagnosis and inefficient management. This brief presentation will highlight five entities ranging from idiopathic to inflammatory and autoimmune. Participants will have an opportunity to witness, by way of clinical images and text material, presentation, etiopathogenesis and management, with a desired format of informality and discussion throughout.
Learning Objectives:
In attending this one hour session, the participant will be exposed to an array of mucosal conditions seen within a community and institutional setting. At the end of the session one expects to have garnered:

  • Appreciation of subtle differences between mucosal lesions with widely different biology and impact as well as management
  • An improved understanding of the common problem of oral aphthous stomatitis and its variants
  • The role of autoimmunity in the pathogenesis of mucosal ulceration and dysfunction
  • Re-acquaintance with the complex of lichenoid lesions, their range of presentation and status of steroid use and alternatives in their management
