"Pediatric Oral Pathology" 

Dr. Ken Tilashalski  

University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Dentistry

Saturday February 20, 2021

Webinar -  2 CE Credits

Title:  Pediatric Oral Pathology 

Children are different in so many ways!  And while many oddities are not age-specific there are many pathologic findings that are unique to kids or occur with greater frequency than in adults.  This course will highlight pediatric pathology including developmental disorders, tumors, infectious diseases, and bony lesions.  Special consideration will be given to the management of these entities in this vulnerable population.  Personal anecdotes, lessons learned, and an opportunity to ask questions will ensure that this material comes to life.

I.  Cases Highlighting the Differential Diagnosis Process

II.  Review of Pediatric Cases & Their Management

            A.  Infectious lesions
            B.  Developmental conditions
            C.  Bony and radiographic pathology
            D.  Conditions seen in newborns

 Course objectives:

  1. Develop a differential diagnosis of ulcerative lesions in kids
  2. Evaluate childhood oral lumps and bumps of the oral and head & neck region
  3. Choose whether a condition needs monitored, biopsied, or referred
  4. Formulate treatment strategies for oral lesions seen in children
  5. Generate an appropriate plan for radiographic pathology follow-up and/or treatment
  6. Differentiate appropriate prescription and non-prescription medications and their safety in children

About the Speaker: 

Dr. Ken Tilashalski (“Dr. T”) is quite unique in that he has earned specialty certificates in both oral & maxillofacial pathology and endodontics.  He is Professor and Associate Dean of Academic Affairs at the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Dentistry, and also holds an appointment at the School of Medicine.  After receiving his D.M.D. from Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine, Dr. Tilashalski completed both of his residencies along with an American Cancer Society fellowship at the University of Alabama. 

Dr. T is passionate about educating dental health care professionals.  He lectures extensively nationally and internationally in the areas of oral pathology, oral medicine, and endodontics.  Through his command of the material, Dr. T has gained a reputation as one of the dental school’s most popular professors.  He was honored as a recipient of the UAB President’s Award for Excellence in Teaching for his dynamic, high-energy, entertaining and interactive style.
