Open lecture to use 3-D photographs to educate dentists

An open interactive seminar at CDA Presents The Art and Science of Dentistry in San Francisco will review oral lesions and dental therapeutics that oral care providers commonly encounter in a community practice. Presented by Samson Ng, BSc(Pharm), MSc, DMD, the seminar will make use of 3-D photographs and hands-on demonstrations of adjunctive evaluation tools to reinforce the chairside techniques for head and neck and intraoral examinations.

Techniques for written and photo documentation of oral lesions will also be discussed, including the use of 3-D photography. The 3-D photographs that will be shared — more than 50 — come from Ng's own extensive collection and will be projected in high resolution on a large screen. In his practice, Ng uses 3-D photography to help identify lesions that need monitoring.

This is only the second lecture Ng has given in 3-D in the U.S. 3-D glasses will be needed to view the photographs. The glasses will be distributed to lecture attendees.

Two sessions of "Lumps and Bumps in the Mouth" are scheduled for Friday, Sept. 9, in room 133. The first runs from 8 to 10:30 a.m. and the second from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. There is no fee to attend and the room is expected to fill quickly!
