Overview

We are delighted to invite you to attend the third Glasgow Oral Surgery Symposium.  This event will be delivered as a hybrid Conference, welcoming face to face and online delegates, with the programme offering up to 6 CPDA credits.

This will be the third part of the benign clinico-pathological conference which will focus on the management of fibro osseous and giant cell lesions of the jaws. We have gathered 5 specialists nationwide who will present strategies on current management including diagnosis, investigations, surgical advances and minimising complications and recurrences.

Lectures will cover:

  • Radiological interpretation including the use of advanced imaging such as CBCT/ CT/ MRI
  • The role of conservative and radical treatment options
  • The value of a pathologist's input in surgical decision making 
  • Management of Juvenile ossifying fibroma
  • Medical management of giant cell lesions
There are similarities in both the clinical and radiological aspects of benign lesions and it is important for the primary care practitioner to identify them early, to be able to refer them to secondary care and for secondary care to organise an appropriate investigations and interventions, producing a predictable surgical outcome on this cohort of patients. The aim of the day is to improve the understanding of the pathology amongst clinicians to choose the appropriate treatment option and subsequent follow-up.  

Who should attend?
Management will involve various oral health care settings including primary, secondary, and tertiary care. This event will be of interest to:

  • General Dental Practitioners
  • Dental and Maxillofacial Radiologists
  • Oral / OMF Surgeons
  • Oral and Maxillofacial Pathologists
This conference will be fully recorded and will appear on delegate dashboards five working days after the conference for a period of three weeks. 


Poster Competition


We are now inviting abstracts for this year's poster competition.  The top 2 will be selected to give a short oral presentation during the Conference and all other accepted abstracts will be displayed on a digital showcase throughout the event.

Poster submissions should be themed around the topic: Management of fibro osseous / giant cell lesions of the jaw.

Submission deadline: 24 March 2023 
submissions should be sent to wilma.paterson@rcpsg.ac.uk 

Poster submission criteria can found in the 'Downloads' section below.
Please note that all successful applicants will be required to book a place at the symposium.

Aims

The aims of this symposium are to understand the role of advanced imaging in early identification and management of potentially destructive benign lesions of the jaws, the relevance of pathogenesis in management of the rapidly enlarging lesions, to appreciate the rationale behind conservative and radical treatment options of these benign tumours and to recognise the importance of long term patient outcomes.

Objectives

  • To be able to discuss differential diagnosis of giant cell lesions and fibro-osseous lesions
  • To have a understanding of the role of aetiology and patheogenesis
  • Be aware of how to prepare the patient for anticipated surgical outcome
  • To be able to recognise available radical and conservative management strategies
