Dr. John Svirsky

This new interactive course for 2021 will present a potpourri of interesting cases seen by me or emailed to me over the past few years. In this course participants learn how to describe a lesion, develop a differential diagnosis and treat the condition. I will show how I approach cases and arrive at a diagnosis. The audience of course will help me to diagnose them as I play the patient. A review of vaping, human papilloma virus and xerostomia will also be discussed.

Some unusual “things” might pop up! A good time is to be had by all.



1.    Develop a logical approach to the diagnosis of oral lesions.

2.    Learn to describe and develop a differential diagnosis of various clinical cases.

3.    Learn to manage selected oral diseases including human papilloma virus and xerostomia.

4.    Recognize “good from bad.”
