A biopsy can often be the optimal way to obtain a definitive diagnosis of oral lesions and diseases. Planning prior to performing a biopsy is essential. Many general dentists feel uneasy performing biopsies because they lack the confidence to plan and apply some of the necessary skills to obtain a suitably sample for the pathologist to make a diagnosis. This course will cover an updated view of oral biopsy techniques with the benefit of practicing in a model at home.

Learning objectives

  • Describe and recognize the different techniques of oral biopsies.
  • Apply the acquired knowledge practicing the skills in a model and ultimately perform a successful oral biopsy in a dental practice.
