Full course description

The diagnosis and treatment of oral and maxillofacial tumors can be challenging. This course will help learners determine whether an intraoral or maxillofacial tumor is benign or malignant. The history, clinical signs, gross, radiographic, cytologic, and histologic characteristics of benign versus malignant lesions will be reviewed. Based on the definitive diagnosis and location of oral and maxillofacial masses, appropriate treatment plans can be developed. 

The various locations of oral and maxillofacial masses include the gingiva, lip, mucosa, tongue, palate, mandible, and maxilla. Treatment options reviewed include gingivectomy, partial lip resection, partial glossectomy, and various mandibulectomy and maxillectomy procedures.

This is a self-paced course. You may start and finish the course at any time. Upon successful completion of this course, you will be granted three hours of continuing education (CE). College of Veterinary Medicine is an authorized CE provider, and our courses are equivalent to RACE approved.
