Learning Objectives:
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Identify the prototypical patient with burning mouth syndrome and recognize common oral diseases in the differential diagnosis.
  • Formulate a thorough but focused evaluation for patients presenting with a burning mouth.
  • Implement a stepwise, multimodal treatment plan for managing patients with primary burning mouth syndrome.

Description:
Burning Mouth Syndrome (BMS) falls within the purview of oral dermatology. Nonetheless, patients with BMS are often avoided or approached with trepidation by dermatologists. This session will provide a structured approach to recognizing, diagnosing and managing patients with BMS. It will increase the efficiency and proficiency of dermatologists currently treating patients with BMS. It will also provide a sufficient knowledge base to allow those not treating patients with BMS to begin doing so in a rewarding manner.
