A sheep in wolf’s clothing: The challenges to assessing oral mucosal disease

Presented by Dr Jonathan Tversky

The evaluation of a patient with oral mucosal disease can be complex and challenging. Determining whether the problem is self-limiting or worrisome needs to be determined early in the process as this will dictate when referral is required. Jonathan will highlight a range of commoner conditioning that need to be considered.
