What to expect

This webinar will enable you to have an improved appreciation of what types of "lesion" make GDPs and doctors worry most. Learning from that, this presentation will also provide guidance to help you interpret clinical and radiographic findings in order to improve the accuracy of your red flag referrals.

A CPD certificate (in the name of the purchaser) will be available to download once viewing of this online lecture has been completed. It is a recording from a webinar delivered live in November 2023.

Learning objectives

  • Improve your understanding of what triggers dentists and doctors to make red flag referrals
  • Find out more about the rarity and natural history of potentially malignant oral lesions
  • Be able to confidently differentiate the more common lesions of concern and appropriately arrange for their referral.
