“A Pathologic Tour of the Oral Cavity” is a clinically-oriented presentation focusing on the more commonly encountered oral diseases in the practice of dentistry. A multimedia format will be used to present a variety of oral lesions that may be detected during an oral examination by any member of the dental team. The goal of the presentation is to reacquaint clinicians with oral pathologic conditions and to update them on current understanding of the nature of these conditions.

Dr. Weir received his DDS degree from the University of Tennessee College of Dentistry in 1974. He also earned a juris doctorate from Loyola University School of Law in 1985. Dr. Weir is a Fellow of the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology and a Diplomat of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology. In addition to his teaching and administrative duties at the LSU School of Dentistry, he also serves as director of the Pathology Biopsy Service.
