  • Update the epidemiological information in incidence, mortality and risk factors
  • How to assess an oral lesion and evaluate potentially oral pre-malignant lesion
  • How to submit a biopsy (for oral pre-malignant investigation)
  • How to manage patients with oral lesions VS (oral pre-malignant lesion)

Synopsis: Oral cancer is a major global health issue with high morbidity and mortality rates. Most troubling, however, is the lack of significant improvement in prognosis of this disease over the last 5 decades, even in developed nations. This is mainly due to late diagnosis with considerable spread and recurrence. Even survived, the patients often face significant functional and esthetical compromises. The best solution is to identify the lesion at risk at its early and treatable stage.

At the conclusion of this course, attendees will be able to learn:

  1. Updated information on the epidemiological information in incidence, mortality, and risk factors
  2. How to assess an oral lesion
  3. How to submit a biopsy
  4. How to manage patients with oral premalignant or cancerous lesions

The Speaker:

  1. Dr. Catherine Poh (DDS, PhD, FRCD (C), Dip. ABOMP), is a Professor, Faculty of Dentistry, University of British Columbia, a Clinician Scientist of the British Columbia Cancer Research Centre, and active staff at the Oral Oncology Program, BC Cancer , and the combined ENT-head & neck and oral medicine clinic at the VGH. She is one of the 2 practicing Oral Maxillofacial Pathologists in BC. Dr. Poh is actively involved in developing processes by which new research information can be transferred into dental communities. Her primary research focus involves application of molecular and imaging tools for community screening, early detection, and management of cancerous and precancerous oral lesions. Her investigations also involve the impact of oral cancer screening in medically underserved communities.
  2. Dr. Samson Ng (BSc(Pharm), DMD, MSc, FRCD(C), FDSRCSEd, Dip. ABOM., Dip. ABOMP), is a Canadian and American Board certified oral medicine specialist and oral & maxillofacial pathologist.

Annual Gala Extravaganza 2018

Cruise Around the World

Date and Venue: Saturday, September 15th, 2018 at Hyatt Regency Vancouver

This year marks a major milestone for the Chinese Canadian Dental Society of BC, as it will be celebrating its 30th Anniversary. To commemorate this accomplishment, CCDSBC will hold its Annual Gala Dinner Extravaganza on Saturday, September 15th at the elegant Hyatt Regency Vancouver.

From its humble start-up in 1988, CCDSBC has evolved into an influential and prominent organization locally, and nationally. It has always strived to promote and improve the oral health of our community. Over the years through the Annual Gala, CCDSBC has raised much needed funds to establish Bursaries and Endowment Funds at UBC, update equipment to the dental clinic at Vancouver General Hospital, start up a Mobile Community Dental Clinic in partnership with UBC Dentistry, provide funds to the BC Cancer Agency’s Oral Cancer Prevention Program, and lately equip a dental clinic at Villa Cathay Care Home.

The beneficiary for 2018 will be the BCDA’s “Save A Smile” program. It supports the urgent dental care needs of BC children from low income families. Dental disease has a tremendous impact on children. Untreated problems can cause pain, interfere with sleep, impair nutrition, impact concentration and attendance at school, and create barriers to socialization. Funds raised for Save a Smile are fully directed to patient care. To date, the program has supported nearly 1700 children in accessing dental treatment.

Our Annual Gala is a well-established and sought after event in which we get together for an evening of great camaraderie, fantastic food, exquisite wine, and remarkable entertainment. This year you will be taken on a magical Cruise Around the World.

With plenty of door prizes and auction items, arrive early to view the latest Mercedes-Benz vehicles, and take pictures of the great décor and reminisce with colleagues.
