Description

Oral cancer patients face significant challenges during treatment and for the rest of their lives. Although dentists encounter these patients commonly, many are unsure of their role in the diagnosis and management of oral cancer and its related treatment sequelae. While early detection is most easily performed in the general dentist’s office, much of the US population unfortunately does not seek routine dental care. This course is designed to educate the dental practitioner on the various etiological factors of oral cancer, the possible role of commercially available adjunctive aids in detection, and the dental management of common oral side effects of oral cancer treatment.

Objectives

Objectives
1. Have a fundamental understanding of the etiology, epidemiology, and diagnosis of oral cancer. 2. Know the possible indications and limitations of currently available adjunctive oral cancer detection devices. 3. Become familiar with the side effects of oral cancer therapy with an emphasis on symptom management and dental concerns.
