Come In and Catch It: The Review that Sticks
This interactive, informative, and entertaining soft tissue review course covers the recognition, diagnosis, and treatment of the 25 soft tissue lesions that every dentist and hygienist should know and treat appropriately. A number of the entities only require recognition. The classic lesions that have been forgotten since school will be brought back to life, and your diagnostic confidence will be re-energized. Some interesting cases may pop up throughout the course.
