Webinar Registration here.

This session is open to doctors and healthcare professionals only.

We are presenting this topic in two segments. The first part is concentrated on the spectrum of oral mucosa disease that can cause pain together with a suggested management plan; not all treatments succeed. The second part is focused on the common headaches and mimics that can occur and confound us in the head and neck region in terms of diagnosis including dental diseases. Thankfully, there are general approaches to diagnosis, and general management and referral options.
