John A. Svirsky, DDS, MEd - "Oral Pathology for the Joy of It: You are the Object of my Infection"
Get ready to laugh, learn and make a difference in the lives of your patients.
Experience a day of oral pathology unlike any you’ve experienced! Dr. Svirsky is a storyteller extraordinaire whose subject just happens to be lumps, bumps, and lesions. Oral diseases are dramatized with emphasis on recognition, diagnosis, and treatment with conventional and non-conventional remedies.
Things you have forgotten since dental school and dental hygiene school are presented in vivid color. Lesions seen more often as “boomers” get older and “dryer” such as Herpes, Aphthous ulcerations, Candidiasis, erosions and dry mouth will be reviewed with current treatment modalities presented.
Dr. Svirsky is a board certified oral & maxillofacial pathologist at Virginia Commonwealth University. In addition to teaching, he has a broad background in research and has numerous publications. He has a private practice of oral pathology and oral medicine in Richmond Virginia. Dr. Svirsky holds a Master’s Degree in adult education. The American Dental Association awarded him their Presidential Citation for significant contributions to the oral health of the public and the profession of Dentistry.
This day-long program will be presented in Dr. Svirsky’s interactive, entertaining, and often risqué style. Make plans to stay the entire day. Dr. Svirsky makes oral pathology FUN!
