Oral Lichen Planus Support Group

Skip breadcrumb navigation

Clinical ComputingLess than two percent of the general population suffers from oral lichen planus, an uncomfortable and chronic condition characterized by lesions that form in the mouth and skin.  It’s not unusual for lichen planus sufferers to know no one else with the disease. 

That’s one reason for the popularity of Texas A&M Health Science Center Baylor College of Dentistry’s online International Oral Lichen Planus Support Group, a web-based support group that brings together sufferers from throughout the world.

The online IOLP Support Group serves as a resource for patients, family members and practitioners.

Red GlobeThe site also features periodic live online webinar discussions that link lichen planus sufferers with faculty in HSC-BCD’s Stomatology Center and guest faculty from other dental schools around the world.
