Dermatopathology is the evaluation of skin biopsies or samples of skin under the microscope. Our dermatopathologist, Dr. Jason Nash, is board certified in dermatopathology and anatomic and clinical pathology. Dr. Nash started our in-house dermatopathology lab in 2007. To receive the best care, it is important that a board certified dermatopathologist reviews skin biopsies.
Oral and maxillofacial pathology is a specialty of dentistry that focuses on the clinical and microscopic diagnosis of diseases of the mouth. Oral pathologists at COSC see patients who are usually referred by dentists and physicians for evaluation of mouth conditions that are difficult to diagnose or treat. These problems include certain infections, growths, precancerous conditions, tumors, sores, and other oral or jaw abnormalities. Oral Pathology doctors at COSC provide clinical expertise, counseling, and necessary testing for the diagnosis and treatment of oral conditions with an emphasis on patient understanding.
Sometimes, oral problems require a biopsy. A sample of the tissue sent to our laboratory will be examined microscopically by our team of oral and maxillofacial pathologists, Dr. Carl Allen and Dr. Ashleigh Briody.
