Mouth Problem? There’s an app for that ADA offers new oral pathologist diagnostic aid


The new American Dental Association (ADA) Oral Pathologist app is a handy tool to aid dentists in the diagnosis of lesions, papules, nodules, ulcers, vesicles and many other oral pathology conditions.

For chairside use with mobile devices, the ADA Oral Pathologist app was developed by Dr. Michael Kahn, chairman and tenured professor of the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine.

App features:
 

  • Access content anywhere (Internet not needed)
  • Registration or subscriptions not required
  • Compatible with Android or Apple
  • Search for over 200 oral pathology conditions by name, or perform searches by entering information such as gender, age, clinical site, and clinical observations
  • Includes suggestions for management

The ADA Oral Pathologist app is available from the Apple Store or on Google Play for $59.99. For more information, visit success.ada.org/en/apps/.
