Back by popular demand! Join us for an introduction to dentistry, including the educational requirements and job opportunities. Drs. Melissa Lin, DDS and Mary Sturgeon, DMD will tell you how it’s done. There will be a hands-on break out session including mirror skills. Brace yourselves for an unfolding case presentation– a 70 year old man with symptomatic chin swelling, large anterior mandibular multilocular radiolucency of the anterior mandible! (Spoiler alert – the biopsy shows ameloblastoma.) You can learn about initial evaluation by a general dentist, and evaluation in a specialty consultation by an oral surgeon. Another hands-on break out session will feature a punch biopsy on chicken hearts. Finally, there will be an oral pathologist evaluation by Jill White, DDS who will present with slides. Join us and learn!.
