We are trained to recognize abnormalities, provide patients education, teach prevention techniques, screen for early detection and provide prompt treatment. This all sounds good intra-orally, but what happens when we see a mole on a patient’s face, lip, eye or skin that keeps getting bigger every time we see them? Do you bring it to their attention? Have you ever taken a photo with their cell phone so they can watch it? Between two and three million non-melanoma skin cancers and 132,000 melanoma skin cancers occur globally each year. This course will make you comfortable understanding the different of “normal” and what could be “abnormal”. Do you discuss the dangers of the tanning bed to those Goddesses? What is UVA and UVB radiation really? What number of sunscreen is absolutely necessary? By the end of this course, you will have the knowledge to quite possibly save a life!
