To help general dental practitioners to formulate comprehensive differential diagnosis for patients with oral mucosal infections.

Learning content 

Join Professor Noha Seoudi in this webinar which focuses on oral mucosal infections. Oral mucosal infections are often part of systemic diseases or infections. It is very important for general dental practitioners to be able to formulate differential diagnosis for these lesions and communicate with the general medical practitioners to help in the early diagnosis and management of the related systemic diseases or infections. This webinar will focus on three different clinical cases and help general dental practitioners to formulate comprehensive differential diagnosis and will also help practitioners consider systemic diseases and infections relevant to these oral manifestations.

You will also have the opportunity to learn more about Professor Noha Seoudi's pioneering new MSc in Clinical and Diagnostic Oral Sciences programme including:

  • Course Content
  • Student Journey
  • MSc Registration
  • Benefits of the Course
  • What to expect after graduation 


At the end of the session, learners will be able to:

  • Formulate comprehensive differential diagnosis for three commonly encountered oral mucosal infections (necrotising gingivitis, primary herpetic gingivostomatitis and pseudomembranous candidosis).
  • Appreciate the role of the general dental practitioners in the early diagnosis of systemic diseases and infections.
  • Appreciate the importance of good communication with other health care providers to adopt a multidisciplinary approach for patient centred personalised medicine.

Professor Noha Seoudi

Following her graduation with an honours degree in dentistry and achieving a Master’s Degree in Oral Medicine from Cairo University, Egypt, she completed a period of general dental training and became a Member of the Faculty of Dental Surgery, Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow. Later on, she was awarded one of the very few academic training posts in Clinical Oral Microbiology in the UK and became a Fellow of the Royal College of Pathologists by examination. Her PhD thesis focused on the interrelationship between oral microbiome and host immune response in patients with Behçet’s Disease. For the academic merit of this work, she was awarded the Young Investigator Award in the International Conference on Behçet’s Disease, Japan, 2012.


Dr Seoudi is one of only eight Clinical Oral Microbiologists in the UK. She has clinical, research and teaching responsibilities. Her main clinical areas of interest are: clinical oral microbiology, infection and immunity in relation to oral health, antimicrobial stewardship and infection prevention and control. She considers teaching one of the most rewarding experiences in her career.  She enjoys teaching a wide range of students from different cultural backgrounds and different learning needs and thrives in the challenge of tailoring her teaching style to benefit all students. She is a member in the dental subgroup of the English Surveillance Programme for Antimicrobial Utilisation and Resistance (ESPAUR).
